The historic Stag brewery site that has produced beer for over 500 years with its 200-metre River Thames frontage is now surplus to requirements. The 22 acre site was was put up for sale by AB InBev and bought by a Singaporean developer of luxury flats for £158m.
The new owner Reselton, which also bought Teddington Studios, will redevelop the brewery to "create a new residential led London destination on the banks of the River Thames in Mortlake" in other words an 'exciting freehold development opportunity' for around 850 homes . . .
Your LibDem councillors are watching the developments like a hawk and we will be on top of anything the Tory led council might want to push through ala 'Twickenham square', Teddington Studios et al.
Richmond Council produced a planning brief, or consultation document (July 2011), but much has changed in the last five years and opinions might not be the same as before, so we expect further consultation. Dartmouth Capital Advisors Limited, who represent Reselton in the UK, said: “We hope to achieve planning consent in the first quarter of 2018 and to undertake the scheme in two phases.”
