Nine Elms on the South Bank is the £15 billion opportunity area between Lambeth Bridge and Chelsea Bridge, and is one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe. The area will be transformed from one of the capital’s last remaining industrial districts into a world-class destination right in the heart of London. Already home to Vauxhall and Battersea Power Station, the area will also be home to the new Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the new U.S. Embassy. Underutilised industrial land is making way for new public squares, parks, schools, Tube stations, homes, and businesses, which will drive growth and create jobs and homes. It will become a strikingly modern addition to the cityscape and a new centre for culture on London’s South Bank.
The Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership is hosting two open days for local residents and interested Londoners to find out what the regeneration of Nine Elms, Vauxhall and Battersea will mean to them. Taking place at the ROSE Community Centre in Battersea, on 14 and 15 July, the annual two day exhibition invites local people to come and talk to those involved and view the plans.
Exhibition highlights include the latest scale model of the regeneration plans, information on jobs and training opportunities and updates on construction of the Northern line extension to Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station. There will also be opportunities to find out more about plans for new public space including the linear park and improvements to the Thames River Path. Spokespeople on the development of social infrastructure including plans for new affordable homes, schools and health centres will also be on hand to answer any questions that visitors may have.
There is no need to RSVP, visitors can just turn up on the day. Those that can’t make it to these events but want to raise an issue or offer feedback can get in touch with the Nine Elms Delivery Team on email@example.com, visit the website: www.nineelmslondon.com or follow @NineElmsTeam on Twitter.
