St Ge­orge was granted plan­ning per­mis­sion to trans­form the dis­used wharves in 2014. 1,800 homes will be de­liv­ered, in­clud­ing 486 af­ford­able homes. The plot has 210,000 sq ft for com­mer­cial space. Six acres of pub­lic open space will in­clude a new civic square. There are also plans for a six-form-entry sec­ondary school and sixth form col­lege for 1,200 pupils. A fifth of the con­struc­tion work­ers are from the lo­cal com­mu­nity. There are 30 lo­cal res­i­dents work­ing on site as ap­pren­tices.
