The regeneration of the Stag Brewery will revitalise Mortlake providing a new riverside destination; improving the area visually, boosting the local economy, improving public safety, and enhancing accessibility.

The brewery has long been a barrier to the river for the community, with the existing unlit dirt path along the River Thames attracting anti-social behaviour. The proposals will transform access to the Thames for the community of Mortlake, by upgrading the dirt path to a new publicly accessible, walkway along the river.

There will be safer routes throughout Mortlake for pedestrians and cyclists, with new walkways and cycleways from Mortlake Green station to the river and improve levelling crossings also being provided.

Local infrastructure will be improved and there will be a significant boost for all local businesses. In particular the new facilities will benefit the young people of Mortlake.

These include:

  • The new state of the art school for 1,200 pupils will include a flood lit all-weather sports pitch and internal multi use game area for activities such as netball which will be open to residents in the community outside of normal school hours.
  • A new 3G pitch and changing room facilities at the school which Barnes Eagles Football Club will have access to
  • New local sports facilities including the creation of a new rowing club with direct river access and outreach to local schools.
  • A 350 seat multi-screen cinema will be great for families to enjoy and drive a lively evening economy at this new riverside leisure destination.

In January 2020 Richmond Council unanimously approved an application to comprehensively redevelop the former Stag Brewery. However, in July 2021 the Mayor of London refused the application.

Following this renowned architects Squire and Partners revised the proposals which were submitted in April 2022 are currently with Richmond Council awaiting decision expected to be made in May/June 2023.

The two applications have been designed with sustainability at the forefront. This will be one of the first large scale developments in London that is air quality positive and will align with the aims set out in the Mayor’s Air Quality Positive London Plan. This is achieved through various design decisions, most notably no fossil fuels will be burnt in the production of heat and hot water to service the scheme. All such needs will be provided by Air Source Heat Pumps and roof top photovoltaic cells.
