A major new planning application for the Silvertown site in the London Borough of Newham has been submitted to transform the area with a £3.5bn investment.

The Silvertown Partnership wants to build 6,500 new homes alongside a vibrant new centre for the Royal Docks.

The 50-acre site show will embrace its dockside location and over five acres of water will be central to the new neighbourhood, with canal walkways, a paddle board club and new bridges providing greater access to the water.

The Silvertown Partnership includes Lendlease working in conjunction with the Greater London Authority (GLA), Homes England and The Guinness Partnership (TGP).

The plans reveal ambitions to make Silvertown a hub of new industry, featuring over 780,000 sq ft of next generation work and creative spaces in the refurbished Millennium Mills buildings and surrounding employment quarter.

Silvertown is expected to become a new cultural hub for the Royal Docks, with brand-new arts and leisure facilities, cafés, restaurants and bars providing residents and visitors a place to unwind and be entertained.

New public squares will play host to cultural events while green spaces will provide access to nature and encourage walking, running and cycling across the site.

It is estimated that more than 1,300 people per year will be involved in construction of the site, with a target of 25 per cent of those to come directly from the London Borough of Newham.

The Silvertown Partnership is seeking full planning permission for phase one of the development, which will include 1,248 new homes, including 610 affordable homes, and 82,328 sqm new commercial space. Outline permission is sought for the remainder of the site.

Prior + Partners are the lead consultant for the hybrid planning application and masterplanners for the whole Silvertown site.

Architects working on various plots within the site include AHMM, dRMM, Pollard Thomas Edwards, Maccreanor Lavington, and Gort Scott with OMMX, with Arup on transport, AECOM on infrastructure and EIA and Energy Strategy, and SLA and Churchman Thornhill Finch on landscape. DP9 are the planning consultant.

Ed Mayes, Project director for Silvertown, Lendlease said: “This is a pivotal moment for the Silvertown development, as we reveal plans for a neighbourhood that will create thousands of much-needed new affordable homes and jobs for Newham. I look forward to continuing to work closely with the local community and our stakeholders to make this shared vision a reality.”
