The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is seeking a masterplanner to draw up a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for its waterfront area
The winner of the estimated £120,000 contract – expected to run for six to eight months – will draw up a masterplan for the ancient Surrey market town’s underused Thames-side zone.
Founded by Romans and later the coronation place of Saxon Kings – Kingston developed as the first crossing point over the Thames upstream of London Bridge.
Waterfront landmarks today include Brookes Architects’ £70 million Kingston Riverside residential scheme, Charter Quay and the Minima Yacht Club.
Haworth Tompkins competed a £3.3 million waterfront regeneration – creating new restaurants, shops and a public space – next to the grade II*-listed Kingston bridge two years ago.
According to the brief: ‘Multidisciplinary consultancy will be required, with particular expertise in landscape architecture and public realm, planning policy, and community engagement.
‘The contractor will undertake all stages in the preparation, development and consultation on the SPD up to the point of adoption, including research and analysis, visioning, engagement, and production of draft and final reports.’
The deadline for applications is 16 May.
