Landmark Rotherhithe New Road Development gets green light from Mayor of London

SCCD Development’s proposal for a £40 million mixed-use scheme at 387-399 Rotherhithe New Road in London, UK has been granted planning permission by Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

The project, designed by architects HLM, comprises a new home for the Southwark Free School, a Sixth Form Centre for the City of London Academy that will be shared with local community-focused charity Bede House, 158 residential apartments and a covered multi-use games area for the local community.

“Working within a constrained site, we developed a high-quality architectural solution that brings together four key components working together to create a cohesive development that positively impacts the area, raises aspiration and stimulates regeneration,” said Paul Turpin, lead architect at HLM.

“This innovative development will enable more than 800 school places in the area, and by obtaining this consent, it will allow the two schools to begin planning the additional places for their community,” he added.

The firms worked closely with the community throughout the process to ensure the scheme provided what they wanted to see in the local area.

The scheme has already been recognised for its design, receiving one of two Commendations in the Masterplanning and Mixed-use category of the New London Awards 2013, which recognises projects of the highest architectural and design quality as well as their contribution towards the local area.

It has also been shortlisted in the Mixed-use Development category at the Placemaking Awards, which recognise projects, plans, people and organisations that are making places better. The winner will be announced on 28 January 2014.
