Fosters Hampton House Plans Resubmitted

Newlands Enterprises, the developer behind the planned regeneration of the Hampton House site in London are looking at getting planning permission for the scheme extended.

The Foster and Partners scheme, which was first approved in February 2008 faces running out of planning permission which these days lasts for three years if it does not get re-approved, something that the Mayor of London may not do as the Mayor's office has ruled that the re-application doesn't conform any more with the key London Plan.

The main sticking points are that there needs to be evidence submitted that ten percent of the rooms in the hotel would be accessible to wheelchairs, and that there needs to be further discussion between the local authorities and the developer on mitigating the transport impact of the scheme, not to mention a decision on possible financial contributions.

The scheme has three cylindrical buildings, ranging from to 85 metres and 27 floors to 75.85 metres and 24 floors, and 40.05 metres and 13 floors respectively making them tall enough to visually contribute to the emerging cluster around the Vauxhall Bridge area.

These will accommodate a 167 bedroom hotel, 242 residential units, 77 of which will be affordable, plus ground floor retail. Around the bases of the buildings there will be new public landscaping running through its centre to open the site up, and contribute public amenity to an area that is currently dominated by a Sixties slab.
