With an additional 20,000 new homes being built and planned, plus the 10,000 households who already live in and around the regeneration area, we are building a sizeable new community for central London. Existing residents already benefit from the area’s world class views, riverside location and proximity to central London. As the area develops and new communities are being formed, there are marked improvements to transport, new public space and improvements to existing space, as well as new access to the Thames River Path, making this an incredibly attractive and desirable place to be.
The Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership is working together to ensure the new communities that form are fully integrated in the creation of a beautiful neighbourhood. It is easy to see why the area is becoming such a sought-after location to live, work and visit and as regeneration progresses more people will experience the benefits on offer. The dramatically improved public realm will provide easy access to an enlivened riverside, a new Nine Elms Park, neighbourhood squares and green spaces, as well as linking through to existing high quality oases at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and Battersea Park. Speed of access into the rest of central London will be dramatically improved with the Northern Line Extension and planned pedestrian & cycle bridge, accompanied by improvements to Vauxhall, Battersea Park and Queenstown Road stations. Cultural activity, which already provides the vibrancy to Vauxhall and Battersea, is becoming a key feature of the area’s offer, with new attractions at Battersea Power Station, Brand New Covent Garden Market’s Food Exchange and new public art throughout the area.
Enhancements to the key services, such as schools and health centres, are being delivered in the area to serve the whole community. More is being made of the area’s railway arches, creating new food, leisure and retail space as well as improving access and helping to make the area a well-connected, walkable neighbourhood.
