Been meaning to write about this for a while, but better late than never.
The Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor Estate property firm wrote to Mayor of London Boris Johnson asking him to designate the area around Bermondsey Tube Station as an ‘area for intensification’ in the revised London Plan policy document.
Grosvenor owns a large chunk of the Biscuit Factory site as well as the former Scott Lidgett/Southwark College/LeSoCo campus.
You can read Grosvenor’s letter in full on the GLA website.
The GLA website describes intensification areas as follows:
Intensification Areas are built up with good existing or potential public transport links and can support redevelopment at higher densities. They have significant capacity for new jobs and homes but at a level below that which can be achieved in the Opportunity Areas.
