British Land’s £400m redevelopment plans for Kingston’s Eden Walk shopping centre have been approved.

The developer - in joint venture with the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) - plans to build 380 homes, 3,223 sqm of office space, a new shopping centre, cinema and 408 car parking spaces.

The scheme also involves creating public spaces and remodelling the memorial gardens on the current 276,000 sq ft shopping centre.

Councillor and cabinet member with responsibility for Regeneration David Cunningham said: “This development is a major boost for Kingston and its future prospects.

“Attracting over £400 million of investment into our town centre marks a significant vote of confidence in the future direction of our borough and provides a regenerated new shopping centre as well as much needed housing. 

“We will be working hard with the developer over the coming months to ensure they continue the very good work they have done on engaging with Kingston residents as they seek to build this scheme.”
