About the existing site and proposals

The site is underutilised at present and has been identified for redevelopment in Lambeth Council’s Local Plan for some considerable period of time. The much loved community centre is tired and the overall run-down site only provides around 20 jobs with most of the site used for coach parking.

CLS (the developers)' proposals provide for a modern community centre to be built in the same location and the provision of over 80 jobs on the site with new commercial uses. In addition, by providing student accommodation CLS is supporting the delivery of the Council’s affordable housing provision by reducing the demand on the private rented sector that would otherwise be available for family housing. New retail and a public mews will also add to the local amenity and setting with better pedestrian links through to local green spaces and architecture sensitive to the area’s heritage.
