Call off from professional services contract with Strategic Partner (Arcadis working with Arup and Mott MacDonald) towards Temple Island Enabling Works.


Temple Island enabling works project is a 5-year programme of design and construction for a series of enabling works, to facilitate development of the Temple Island site.
In October 2020 Cabinet authorised the Executive Director for Growth and Regeneration, in consultation with the Mayor, the S.151 Officer, and Director of Legal Services to use up to £32m of repurposed EDF funding towards the enabling works.
