Planning success in Lambeth Estates regeneration
Lambeth Council’s planning committee has given the go ahead, by unanimous vote, for the Knights Walk and Westbury Estate Regeneration projects, which will provide 354 new and replacement homes for local people in this borough of Inner London.
The two schemes form part of the Lambeth Estates Regeneration programme and are the first to receive outline planning application approval. CPC Project Services are providing development management and employer’s agent services alongside Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design who are the lead consultants to Homes for Lambeth, who are delivering the schemes on behalf of the Council.
The Westbury Estate consists of four new urban blocks and a 10-storey tower which will provide 270 new and replacement mixed-tenure homes for existing residents;
Knights Walk, on the Cotton Gardens Estate will deliver 84 mixed tenure homes, the majority of these will be new homes for local people.
Cllr Paul McGlone, Lambeth Council’s Deputy Leader (Investment and Partnerships) said: “I’m pleased planning permission has been given, providing a new home for every council tenant and additional council-rent homes for local families that are genuinely affordable”.
Tim Barber, CPC Partner, said “We are delighted to be supporting Homes for Lambeth to deliver these important regeneration schemes for the local area. As part of a multi-disciplinary team, we have been able to maximize the potential of the site and see it through financial appraisal, design and planning phases to reach this significant project milestone. We look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with the project team to push the schemes forward to construction on site”
