New Bermondsey

Scheme update

In 2012, Renewal secured outline planning consent for New Bermondsey, one of London’s largest regeneration projects, that would enable the transformation of a 30 acre industrial site into a new, vibrant neighbourhood. The scheme, whilst retaining the Millwall Football Club stadium, provided for the delivery of 2,400 new homes, a new station on the East London Line with a bus interchange to service two new bus routes, together with other public benefits including new and upgraded public spaces and extensive community facilities.

As a result of recent discussions between Lewisham Council, Renewal and Millwall Football Club, it has been agreed that a new approach will be taken to delivering the New Bermondsey scheme.

Key changes will include an increase in both the number of new homes and the number of affordable homes, from 10% to 35%, intended to address London’s chronic shortage of affordable homes, as well as a new arrangement that would allow Millwall FC to deliver enhancements to its stadium and surrounding land.

Renewal intends to submit an outline planning application for the wider New Bermondsey masterplan and a detailed planning application for the first phase of the scheme before the end of 2019.

This website will be fully updated once the revised plans have been finalised, but for now the consented scheme details will remain here for your information. Please check back periodically for details on the revised New Bermondsey scheme and if you have any questions, contact us at
