Squire and Partners bags planning for ‘Potters Fields’ scheme
Squire and Partners has landed planning permission for this mixed-use redevelopment close to Potters Fields park in London
Consisting of 9 residential blocks and one 20-storey tower, the project features retail and a ‘large public cultural facility’.
A statement from the practice said: ‘Berkeley Homes and Squire and Partners are delighted at Southwark Council’s decision to consent the Potters Fields plans last night [8 March].
‘The approval follows over two years of design work, combined with detailed reviews and consultations with the stakeholders, including English Heritage, Historic Royal Palaces and local residents and community groups.’
Landscaped by Gross Max, the project aims to create new links between its neighbouring ‘Shad Thames’ and ‘More London’ developments.
CABE twice slammed the design, claiming it failed to ‘hold its own in the string of major cultural buildings along the south bank’.
Construction is expected to start on site later this year.
