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.
