More consultation for New Covent Garden

VINCI St. Modwen are holding a second public exhibition to display refined proposals for the redevelopment of the New Covent Garden Market sites in Nine Elms.

The exhibition will show plans for new homes, shops, a park and a modern new market.

The development would also include the Garden Heart – a new centre for food and flowers, with restaurants, business services and a public market.

VSM will also show how they have responded to the community feedback received at an initial exhibition held earlier this year.

Colin Darby, Planning Manager at VSM, said: “At our first consultation event in July, many people we spoke to were supportive of the plans, and they gave us useful feedback which we have considered and responded to.

“We hope that people are able to attend the second consultation event to see how the plans have progressed and provide a further opportunity for the local community to take part in the planning process’.

Jan Lloyd, Chief Executive of CGMA said: “These designs are hugely exciting and the creation of modern new facilities will secure the long term future of the UK’s largest wholesale market, employing over 2,500 people in around 200 tenant businesses.

“We are continuing to work closely with VSM and our tenant community to finalise the design details and we hope the public do take the time to engage in this further consultation.”
