Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea (VNEB)
Vauxhall and Albert Embankment are part of Nine Elms – on the South Bank. Extending from Lambeth Bridge in the north down to Battersea Power Station it is the largest central London regeneration area. By 2030 it will be a distinctive new central London neighbourhood and is a major opportunity for the local community and the whole of London.
- New homes – More than 18,000 new homes expected to be built across the regeneration area, about 3,500 of these will be in the Vauxhall area
- New jobs – approximately 22,000 jobs will be created during the construction phase and many of these will be earmarked for local people. A further 25,000 jobs could be created as businesses occupy the new developments.
- Better transport – including £1 billion extension to northern line and two new tube stations; £45 million improvements to Vauxhall tube station; and remodelling of the Vauxhall gyratory
- Improved social infrastructure – including two new schools, approximately 50 acres of new public space, culture and the arts
- Around 50 acres of new public spaces - street improvements, parkland, and a new river walk benefiting cyclists and pedestrians.
We support growth in the area and we are working to make sure local residents and businesses can share in the benefits and take advantage of the opportunities it brings.
- The Leader of the Council, Cllr Lib Peck, is co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership which oversees the regeneration of the area. Council officers attend working groups on all aspects of regeneration, such as public realm.
- With local people’s help, we produced the Vauxhall Supplementary Planning Document (2013) which provides a guide for development in the area. Our planning team makes sure that applications from developers comply with planning policies, respond to local concerns and lead negotiations with developers on s106 planning obligations
- Our jobs brokerage team, Lambeth Working, will be making sure that local people have access to job and training opportunities.
- We are coordinating a programme for the borough’s schoolchildren to take part in work-related activities and other projects

Proposed Northern line extension
Increasing public transport throughout the area is essential to support the transformation of Vauxhall and Nine Elms. The proposed extension of the Charing Cross branch of the Northern line from Kennington would have two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea.
For more detailed information on the Northern line extension and the TWAO application go directly to TfL's Northern line extension pages.
