Developer Renewal exhibits plans for Surrey Canal area around Millwall
PLANS for the £65.8m redevelopment of the area round Millwall's stadium are on show for a month.
Developers Renewal are showing off the plans, which will transform the 13.5 hectare Surrey Canal site around the Den and provide a long-awaited new train station.
Given the nod by a planning committee last year, the regeneration project will see the area become a "sports village", featuring 2,500 new homes along with a range of leisure facilities.
Chairman of Surrey Canal Sports Foundation Steve Norris said: "These proposals provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to regenerate a long neglected part of London whilst delivering the capital’s first major sports centre for community use since Crystal Palace in 1964."
Renewal plans to start work on the project later this year.
Plans are on show from Friday until July 28 at New London Architecture, Store Street, off Tottenham Court Road.
