2019 ThamesWey planning consents for the scheme
ThamesWey Developments Ltd, a development company wholly owned by the Council, was invited to bring forward improved proposals for the delivery of the regeneration scheme. It submitted two applications in 2018, both of which were approved on 18 April 2019.
1) Revised hybrid application, submitted March 2018
Taking into account residents’ feedback, ThamesWey submitted a revised hybrid planning application for a scheme that offered significantly more affordable family housing, assisted accommodation and green space. ThamesWey obtained outline planning consent for 1,142 homes within the regeneration area, and detailed consent for 695 of these.
2) Section 73 application, submitted April 2018
This application was submitted by ThamesWey for minor but material amendments to the consented scheme brought forward previously by New Vision. The changes mainly related to the leisure centre and sports facilities, the playing fields timeline, and the on/offsite drainage. Another notable change was the substitution of a CHP plant with a ground source heat pump.
