Wandsworth’s Workmatch service was officially launched with a small ceremony at its new Lavender Hill offices earlier this week.
I represented Wandsworth on a tour of Nine Elms by Greater London Assembly regeneration committee members yesterday.
Battersea Power Station’s development was ‘started’ last week with a joint ground-breaking by the Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom and Malaysia.
Not, at first sight, the greatest news for Nine Elms that the banks have called in the administrators at Battersea Power Station.
Although nothing like as closely involved in the developments in Nine Elms as I was (and even then it was such a big project I was only tangentially involved) the development continues apace: the Tideway site was recently given planning permission and the Secretary of State recently approved the plans for Battersea Power Station.
The council are running two meetings, tonight and tomorrow, for residents interested in finding out more about the regeneration of Nine Elms.
Another of the big projects for Nine Elms took a step forward yesterday with the announcement of the six shortlisted developers for the redevelopment of New Covent Garden Market.
