One-world design presented the proposal last month to select group of planners and politicians. The scheme has now secured written support from all 3 council leaders of the nearby London boroughs - Ravi Govindia, leader  of LB Wandsworth; Hammersmith and Fulham Deputy leader and Environment Cabinet Member Nick Botterill and the H&F leader Stephen Greenhalgh; along with Nicholas Paget-Brown, leader of RBK&C.

 

The proposal is being actively promoted by the GLA's Richard Tracey and Jane Ellison MP and following the meeting with TfL earlier this week real progress is being made as to possible funding streams.

 

One-world design intend to submit a full planning application by early June and we are hoping that this bridge will be a fitting celebration of the Queens Diamond Jubilee. The Queen will be boarding the flotilla at site of the proposed bridge and we intend it to be announced as a  legacy project during the celebrations.

  

The model of the bridge is currently on view in the reception of Hotel Rafayel, Battersea and one-world design will be exhibiting at the Summer in the Square event, in Battersea on May 12th.

    Over the last few months we have been progressing the footbridge design and meeting with the relevant consultees.

    The investigations and information now available to us from these consultees and the comments received from English Heritage and the Environment Agency for example have shaped the design development.

    We are still on target to lodge a full planning application at the beginning of november, in the meantime please follow progress by 'liking' our facebook page at http://tinyurl.com/9bu7r8p
