Cocks Crescent SPD
Cocks Crescent presents an enormous opportunity to boost the vitality of New Malden district centre whilst providing much needed housing for the borough's growing population. Kingston's population is set to increase by 30 percent by 2036 and Cocks Crescent has been identified as an area which could support this growth while delivering maximum community benefit.
The Cocks Crescent Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been developed with significant community input and sets out a shared vision for the future redevelopment of the site.
Any planning application on the site must comply with the key overarching principles set out in the SPD. These include:
- A comprehensive redevelopment outcome that supports the Cocks Crescent vision.
- A new civic focus for New Malden in the form of a new, council-owned community sport and wellbeing hub including a 25 metre swimming pool.
- A mix of uses that strengthens the role of the New Malden District Centre and enhances its vitality and attractiveness.
- Development that optimises population and economic growth to meet the needs of a growing population.
- Development that accounts for existing and planned infrastructure and contributes appropriately to local services and requirements, such as schools and healthcare.
