The Mayor of London has confirmed he is ‘calling in’ the application for Grosvenor's build to rent scheme in Bermondsey.

The Mayor will now act as the planning authority for the purposes of determining our planning application.

Commenting on the call in, Simon Harding Roots, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, commented:

"We believe in the value of diverse neighbourhoods and we take our role as a responsible landlord, providing opportunities for many people, not just a few, very seriously.

"In Bermondsey, we are committed to creating and managing a diverse neighbourhood, and have spent over five years working with the community and others to ensure our proposals reflect their ambitions for the area – today and in the future. Continuing this engagement will be a vital component of the next stage in this process.

"Today our site is a largely neglected, fenced off area which provides no homes, facilities, open spaces or significant employment opportunities for the borough.

"With the GLA, Southwark Council and local stakeholders we will work to bring both much needed new homes and the many additional benefits of our proposals to Bermondsey. These include new jobs, a new school, increased local spend, new retail, community and dining areas surrounded by new play and public spaces which together would create a long lasting social and economic legacy for the area."
