Nine Elms Parkside Redevelopment

Nine Elms Parkside

Slideshow imageSlideshow image

In March 2012 Wandsworth Council approved plans for a mixed use development of the NIne Elms Parkside site on the Southern side of the River Thames. Currently it accommodates the Royal Mail Group's South London Mail Centre and lies in an area of anticipated large-scale redevelopment that includes the neighbouring sites of Battersea Power Station and the New Covent Garden Market.

The plans include approximately 1,900 homes and a 3.3 acre park which will connect Battersea Power Station to Vauxhall Cross and retain a postal delivery office.

Our Role

Steer Davies Gleave provided The Royal Mail Group with transport advice at the masterplan, feasibility design and planning application stages. We prepared supporting documents for the planning application for this major development. This included the preparation of a Transport Assessment, Delivery & Servicing Plan and a Construction & Logistics Plan.  We also prepared three Travel Plans for the site – a Residential Travel Plan, a School Travel Plan for the primary school and nursery and a Framework Travel Plan for the office, commercial and community uses.

Nine Elms Parkside will make significant financial contributions to the Northern Line Extension which will create two new Tube stations in Nine Elms for future residents and visitors. Contributions will also go towards an extension of the Barclay Cycle Hire scheme to Nine Elms and new car club parking spaces for the site.

How we did it

We worked closely with the masterplan team to develop a workable solution ensuring effective operation. This included assisting with design and analysis, while maintaining access to the Delivery Office throughout the construction.

The challenge was to integrate the development with neighbouring sites such as the Battersea Power Station and New Covent Garden Market and we also worked closely with other developers to ensure the most efficient access solutions, such as providing joint access to Nine Elms Parkside and Embassy Gardens.

Nine Elms Parkside will be an accessible and permeable development with new walk routes across the site, 2,400 cycle parking spaces and the creation of a new frontage onto Nine Elms Lane with public realm improvements
