We're committed to delivering high quality design for new developments and regeneration areas. We provide advice on urban design and guide development through the production of master plans, planning frameworks and design briefs.

Current projects

The Canons House & Grounds regeneration project

The Canons House & Grounds in Mitcham has been awarded £4.4 million raised by National Lottery players and awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery Fund.

Colliers Wood Tower

We’re working with Criterion Capital on the redevelopment of the former Brown & Root Tower. The conversion and extension of the tower to the north into 150 apartments is underway. We've also been granted permission for a south extension to the tower for 68 apartments. We're expecting the developer to submit revised plans for the south side in early 2016.

Connecting Colliers Wood

In partnership with Transport for London (TfL) and the Mayor of London, we're making improvements to Colliers Wood. TfL have completed junction works, the cycle by-pass and paving works around Colliers Wood Station. We've completed work on Merton High Street with new paving, street lighting and an upgrade of the railings alongside the River Wandle in front of Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer.

Later in 2016, a new piazza and landscaping will be delivered by Criterion Capital once the construction work on Colliers Wood Tower finishes. Improvements to the boundary walls of Wandle Park and the creation of a pedestrian priority 'homezone' in Baltic Close are underway.

Make More of Morden

Morden has been identified as one of the major growth and housing opportunity areas in south west London by the Mayor of London, Transport for London and Merton Council. We are now working jointly with TfL to deliver the regeneration of Morden, which will include the provision of additional homes, an enhanced retail offer, improved public realm and greater connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists.

Future Wimbledon

We're exploring the development opportunities and economic growth potential of Wimbledon; following on from 2014's Future Wimbledon Ideas Competition. There could be significant investment in Wimbledon station for Crossrail 2, which could lead to a knock-on opportunity for improvement and development in the centre.

Wimbledon Stadium

In 2014, a planning application for the redevelopment of Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium was submitted by AFC Wimbledon and Galliard Homes. The application proposed a new 11,000-20,000-seat football stadium, retail and residential development. Following public consultation, our cross-part committee approved the planning application in December 2015 and the Section 106 agreement was signed in December 2017.

Rediscover Mitcham

Rediscover Mitcham was a three-year project to create an attractive town centre and revitalise the Fair Green and surrounding streets.
