Eagle Brewery Wharf
We are proud to be working in partnership with Kingston First, the town centre’s business improvement district, to transform Eagle Brewery Wharf on Kingston’s riverside into a place where everyone can unwind, enjoy and connect with nature.
The ambition for Eagle Brewery Wharf is to create a well-loved, inclusive and activated space in a key riverside location in Kingston. The proposals build on the natural setting by maximising greenery and biodiversity and connecting the site with the river. There is also a great opportunity to enhance Eagle Brewery Wharf’s distinctive character by reflecting its rich history and heritage in its design.
Following engagement with our communities, businesses and local partners, we are approaching a design freeze on the project and are looking to submit a planning application for the scheme in this Spring. Further information on the final proposals will be added here when available.
Thank you to all of those that gave their views on the proposals throughout the process.
This initiative is part of Kingston town’s public realm strategy; Reimagining Kingston Town Centre’s Streets and Spaces which was completed in collaboration with Kingston First, Kingston Council, Kingston University and the GLA. The strategy sets out a blueprint for how public spaces could be invested in to improve the experience of Kingston, encourage more people to move around all parts of the town and ensure that the town’s culture, heritage and riverside assets continue to be developed. It also feeds into the work currently underway which looks at how we shape the future of the town centre and surrounding area; A Plan for Kingston Town Centre Area.
The Eagle Brewery Wharf project is part of the council’s wider heritage-led ‘Transform Kingston’ regeneration programme, which looks to reinvigorate and reshape the town centre to make it even better for residents, local businesses, students and visitors.
These significant public realm improvements are an extension of the work being done to reduce anti-social behaviour on the Eagle Brewery Wharf site. In the last few years, the council has put a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in place to give them and the local police power to regulate activities in the area, as well as partnered more closely with establishments along the riverside to increase people’s enjoyment of the space.
