Policy for planning application decisions

The Lambeth Local Plan  sets out the vision, strategic objectives and policies for development of  the built environment development in Lambeth. The Plan covers matters from telephone boxes to housing, work places, town centres, infrastructure (such as health facilities and schools), transport, environment and historic buildings. Together with the London Mayor’s it forms the statutory basis for deciding on planning applications.

The council is now starting  a 2 year process to update the 2015 plan. The first stage – ending on 4th December 2017 – is consulting on the issues to be reviewed.

To have your say see the online survey at: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/lambeth-local-plan-review-2017

Decision on Tennis Club site

Tennis club site

Developers are making a sixth attempt to build flats on the site of the West Norwood Tennis club. The council has turned down their plans 5 times and each time the developers have appealed to the Independent Planning Inspector who supported the council.

The council is likely to recommend accepting the sixth version of the plans (including 32 new homes, a gym, squash & tennis courts) to the Planning Committee on Tuesday 20th June 7pm at the Karibu Centre, Gresham Road SW9 7PH.

proposed view from Knights Hill

Local councillors and a group of residents remained opposed to the plans . Many people want to keep tennis courts on the site but think the proposed tennis club may be too small to be financially viable. As the development is car-free there are also concerns that extra parking by new residents & any club users will add to the pressures of parking in Cheviot Road and nearby streets. Please get in touch with Cllr Pickard if you intend to attend the Planning Committee: jpickard@lambeth.gov.uk

More details of the new homes and the management arrangements for the proposed new club are on the council Planning database – quote ref 16/01650 at https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/

Cllr Pickard at the Tennis Club gates

Developers want to build 32 new homes on the Tennis Club site at the corner of Cheviot Road & Knights Hill SE27 0SR. Due to the lack of open space and sports facilities locally –  Lambeth’s planning rules mean the tennis club must be retained as part of the new build.

More details of the management arrangements for the proposed new tennis club are now available on the council Planning database – quote ref  16/01650 at https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/ . 500-700 paying members are anticipated with courts open 10am to 9pm. A gym, squash courts & sports hall are also part of the plans.

Lambeth’s Planning Committee will meet on Tuesday 21st March 7pm at the Karibu Centre, Gresham Road SW9 7PH to make the final decision. THIS MEETING IS NOW POSTPONED.

See our posts on 15/4/16 , 22/7/15 and earlier.
