Project Success: Approval for the Bromley By Bow Development

21.06.2024 2 min read

Temple is pleased to announce the planning approval of the Bromley By Bow development. The plans, approved by Newham Council in June, aim to redevelop the Bromley-by-Bow Gasworks and will feature 166 homes for social rent (all phases would deliver up to 2,200 residential units). The redevelopment project is headed by St William, a joint venture between Berkeley Group and the National Grid, formed in 2014 to construct new homes on disused gas sites.

Temple was appointed by St William to undertake the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) coordination and management role. The scheme at Bromley By Bow, which will provide approximately 2,100 new residential homes, will include the retention and refurbishment of all 7 listed gasholder frames currently located on the site and create a new neighbourhood with amenity, leisure and community spaces. The development will integrate sustainable energy sources and provide cycle parking and other sustainable transport options.

Temple worked with the project team to undertake the EIA and coordinate the preparation of the Environmental Statement (ES) for submission as part of the planning application, within the agreed project programme. The experienced EIA team worked seamlessly to advise on potential design risks and provide design input to create sustainable development.

With Phase 1 of the development set to be completed in 2032, with the full scheme to be built out by 2044, the Temple team is excited to see it progress into a sustainable residential-led, mixed-use development.
