Here is the link on the Lambeth Planning Site to the redevelopment of the Kings Car Park which is adjacent to Lilford Road Estate and Geoffrey Chaucer. Probably the largest scheme proposed in the area for many years.
This application is to build 108 affordable homes (social housing) on the
site of the Kings Car Park/ old Sunday Market site. The flats will be in 2
blocks filling the front of the site onto Coldharbour Lane and are all
proposed to be 8 storeys high. The highest buildings in the area are the
Lilford Estate and they are 5 storeys and set back – most properties are 2,
3, or 4 storeys high in the area. –
In an area with high levels of social housing (Lilford Estate, Winterbrook,
Thorlands, Geoffrey Chaucer and Crawford (over the Southwark Boundary)),
given the proposal to introduce a dispersal zone in this area, because of
already unacceptable crime issues, is such an intense development ideal?
Please look at the proposals and provide comment if you wish to Lambeth –
the DEADLINE is 4 August – which is when Lambeth anticipate making a
decision. I attach a couple of images.
