Berkeley Homes to consult on plans for Malt Street regeneration near Old Kent Road

News Desk (29 September, 2016)

The development would see more than 850 homes built


The developers who want to regenerate the old Hygrade Meat Factory, Acorn Wharf and Surrey Wharf are consulting on their plans today and Saturday.

Berkeley Homes is looking to submit a planning application for the Malt Street site by the end of 2016, with initial proposals suggesting a dramatic change to layout of the 5.3 acre area.

The first consultation in April proposed a new route linking the Old Kent Road to Burgess Park along the historic Grand Surrey Canal, as well as better access across the site from north to south.

The scheme is part of the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area, which was outlined by former Mayor Boris Johnson and the council as a brownfield site with capacity for development.

The consultation is today from 2pm to 8pm and on Saturday is from 9:30am to 12:30pm, at the Unwin and Friary Estate Tenants’ and Residents’ Hall in Frensham Street SE15 6TH.
