The Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership is a coalition between the Wandsworth and Lambeth Council, the Mayor of London, Transport for London, the Greater London Authority and the area’s main developers and landowners. The purpose of the Partnership, founded in 2010, is to lead the transformation of the South Bank area and includes the management of a £1 billion infrastructure investment package. Groundwork London was contracted to assist the Partnership in the planning of this development.
To support Groundwork London in tracking the level of community benefits from the Nine Elms and Vauxhall development, Groundwork GIS designed a mapping tool that can be used to gather, monitor and evaluate how communities benefit from the re-development.
Snapshots of the development and the community benefits were created for three different time periods, sourcing both spatial and non-spatial data from a variety of sources including local planning and development frameworks, section 106 contributions from relevant planning authorities and development phasing’s from specialist commissioning reports.
This data was used to build a bespoke community benefits tool which included online interactive maps, baseline and forecast datasheets, static maps and interactive tools and graphics built into a dashboard. This toolkit package provided a way for the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership to pull together and track community benefits information from over 60 developments.
