Case Study: Bermondsey Spa, London Developer: The Hyde Group Local authority: Southwark Council Architects: Levitt Bernstein Architects

Bermondsey Spa is a mixed-use, mixed-tenure housing regeneration scheme in south-east London that will deliver over 2,000 new homes, of which around 40% will be affordable housing. There will be two health centres, an NHS dental practice, a pharmacy, new youth and play facilities, 2.5 hectares of re-landscaped open space, secure bicycle parks and new shops.

Partnership working The developer, council and architect worked closely together to lead the development of a number of key sites and minimise planning and construction delays, as well as designing a mixed community that would develop in the future. The sites had been derelict for some time despite being close to a tube station, which was the eventual catalyst for the development. The landowner, Southwark Council, sold some of the land to lead developer The Hyde Group, an affordable-housing provider. Southwark and Hyde took a partnering approach to ensure the sale of the land was beneficial to both organisations and the local community. Levitt Bernstein prepared a local masterplan of the area for the council to form part of the wider council-led plan for Bermondsey Spa. The outline plan and further plans for each of the three phases were all detailed, to secure planning permission quickly.
