We Made That were appointed to deliver the Tolworth Area Plan, a major place-making strategy and masterplan for the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames in collaboration with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London. The Tolworth Area Plan will help to inspire new initiatives to transform the area, supporting communities and delivering economic growth and prosperity. It sets out a vision and flexible framework for change including 1750 new homes, 1000 new jobs and associated infrastructure.
The practice led a team of urban experts to ensure that the Tolworth Area Plan is robust, ambitious and positioned to maximise growth benefits for the area in an equitable manner.
Tolworth has been identified as a key area of change in the Kingston Core Strategy. Alongside the anticipated arrival of Crossrail 2, the area will become a focus for regeneration. The Area Plan provides spatial guidance on the opportunities associated with strategically significant sites, movement, the public realm and the development benefits associated with the prospect of better connectivity. The new vision identifies sites for development as well as existing assets to help build a successful local economy.
The document will form part of the evidence base for the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames Local Plan and therefore forms part of a suite of documents aimed at guiding Tolworth’s future development.
