Application now submitted
We are pleased to report that a planning application has now been submitted to the council and has been given the planning reference number 19/P3814.
Over the past three months we have consulted with local residents and community groups, including a public exhibition attended by 34 people and meetings with key local stakeholders. We have been very pleased with the local response to the plans. There has been a good proportion of people in favour of the proposals, particularly welcoming our plans for a more environmentally friendly building and improved facilities for pedestrians.
The development will bring key benefits including:
- Over 220 new FTE jobs for Merton, with office workers who will spend money in Wimbledon town centre.
- New modern and improved Grade A office space, of which there is a sizeable demand (you can read more about this, including comments from Love Wimbledon BID on the project website).
- New landscaping and widening of the pavement creating a better area for the public to enjoy.
- The building will be one of, if not the greenest building in Wimbledon, contributing to improved air quality for Wimbledon residents.
We welcome your feedback and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
