£1bn Ram Brewery project given go-ahead
London Borough of Wandsworth’s planning committee has given its consent for the £1bn Ram Brewery project in Wandsworth, London.
The development will have a heavy emphasis on the heritage of the historic brewing site and will include nearly 10,000sq m (107,600sq ft) of leisure space.
There will also be a micro-brewery and a brewing museum and 661 new homes - some of which will be located in a 36-storey landmark residential tower designed by EPR architects.
Wandsworth Council’s decision to grant planning permission to Minerva, the developer which submitted the plans, follows improvements and refinements to the initial plans after a series of consultation meetings between the Council, English Heritage and the local community.
Tim Garnham, joint chief executive of Minerva, said: "The decision of the Wandsworth Planning Committee tonight will bring a huge boost for Wandsworth town centre.
"We have worked hard to create a scheme which will showcase the site’s heritage buildings as well as provide new public spaces, incorporating the restoration of the River Wandle and establish the High Street as the centre of Wandsworth.
“As well as regenerating a significant area at the heart of Wandsworth town centre, the plans will act as a catalyst for further local investment including the Council’s plans to redesign of the gyratory which will see the majority of traffic removed from the town centre.”
