Gravesham Borough Council’s Planning Committee voted unanimously to resolve to grant planning consent for the mixed use regeneration of Albion Waterside. The project will provide an exciting new place for local people to live, work and visit. The plans will deliver 1,500 new homes around the canal basin including a mix of affordable housing as well as Later Living and build-to-rent properties.
The currently underutilised 5.5ha brownfield site, which is situated on the south bank of the River Thames, will be transformed with over 65% allocated for landscaped open space, including gardens which will be accessible to all. The regeneration will also see an extension of the existing promenade by 350m of additional riverside walkway. Overall, the proposals will deliver 4,500sqm of space for local businesses including shops, restaurants and workspaces, enabling a sustainable community where people and businesses can thrive.
