Revised application submitted for Victoria Transport Interchange after rejection of earlier version

Land Securities has submitted a revised planning application for its Victoria Transport Interchange (VT12) development in London.

The 2.5ha mixed-use scheme, designed by Kohn Pederson Fox, Benson & Forsyth and Lynch Architects, would include six buildings near Victoria station.

If given the go-ahead by Westminster City Council, the project would include private and affordable housing, alongside office space, shops, leisure facilities and a car park.

The submission follows an earlier application in 2007. The council rejected the initial plans in December for not complying with local planning policies on building height and affordable housing provision.

Colette O'Shea, head of development for Land Securities' London portfolio, said: “This is an important scheme for both Victoria and London. Land Securities has taken a significant step towards regenerating this part of Victoria and securing its future as a thriving commercial and residential hub.”

The developer said that construction could begin in 2010.
