Vauxhall One By Vauxhall One

As part of the regeneration of Vauxhall, we wish to improve the look and feel of Kennington Lane, the main shopping high street for Vauxhall. We want to give it vibrancy and a new lease of life.

Vauxhall is changing fast and there are many new developments taking place within the Vauxhall Nine Elms Area of Opportunity. However, Kennington Lane, adjacent to the busy gyratory, has suffered from years of neglect. Vauxhall One, the Business Improvement District, aims to change this environment to help create a vibrant town centre and High St. To this end, along with Lambeth Council, Vauxhall One applied successfully for the New Homes Bonus to regenerate Kennington Lane and its shopfronts. We believe this fits perfectly with the Mayor's High Street Fund as it seeks to regenerate a run down high street and bring it back to life as part of a vibrant community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Vauxhall One aims to: 1 improve the shopfronts 2 clean up the brickwork 3 clean up and repair the pavements

Why it's a great idea:

Improving Kennington Lane will:

1 improve the look and feel of this run down high street by restoring architectural features and improving shop frontages

2 give support to local businesses and traders in a difficult and harsh trading environment.

3 create local benefits by improving the look and feel of the environment

4 attract more customers to Vauxhall

Steps to get it done:

  • Use local contractors to deliver the shopfront improvements.
  • Partner local businesses and landlords with local designers and architects
  • Work with local authority to deliver sustainable change

These proposals are part of the broader plan by the Business Improvement District to regenerate and improve the public realm in Vauxhall. This is being done as part of the Urban Greening of the area, along with the rail arch regeneration, improved street cleaning and work within the day and night time economies. Vauxhall One is committed to improving the look and feel of Vauxhall, to make it a better place for residents and businesses alike. Kennington Lane was identified in various studies as requiring enhancement to give a better local high street. We hope the Mayor will support our ambition in doing this.
