Housing Development Next To Planned Overground Station Gets Approved

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on IanVisits.

This paragraph describes the development.

The development, New Bermondsey, will see a cluster of residential towers built around the Millwall football ground on former light industrial sites, and will provide some 3,500 homes, a new sports facility, auditorium with 800 seats, and it’s said some 1,250 jobs. The towers vary in height across the site from 13 – 44 storeys; most towers are around 29/30 storeys.

The Overground station is New Bermondsey station, which was originally to be called Surrey Canal Road station.

This Google Map shows the area.

Note.

  1. The railway going down the East side of the map in the South London Line of the London Overground.
  2. The railway going round the West side of the map is the National Rail line going through South Bermondsey station to London Bridge.
  3. The two lines meet at Queens Road Peckham station to the South.
  4. Surrey Canal Road runs East-West across the map to the South of The Den.
  5. New Bermondsey station will be where Surrey Canal Road crosses under the London Overground.
  6. Most of the new housing will be clustered along this road and around the football ground.

The development will be convenient for Millwall supporters.
