Watkin Jones’ propose to deliver new affordable homes at a key location on the site. The focus is homes at social rent, which is an identified local need.
We also recognise that new universities are moving into the area, including the Royal College of Art’s new campus at Hester Road. The new Northern Line extension also means the locality is accessible to a range of universities in central London.
That is why we believe that new student homes here (including affordable provision) meets and increasing local need and which, in turn, helps keep family homes accessible to local people – potentially releasing some student housing stock, and limiting the number of existing properties that may become student Houses of Multiple Occupation in the future.
We are also mindful of our neighbours, especially those living in Viridian Apartments. That is why we have chosen to set our scheme back from the boundary line of our site, creating a greater distance between existing and proposed residential buildings.Disclaimer
We have created an automatic ranking system for new-build homes in London based on several critical features around the development, like schools, parks, and transport infrastructure.
We have developed this new analytical tool to calculate the scores based on the location data. Note that AutoScore values are not set by us or anyone else – everything happens automatically.
Resident Update Event on 30th November 2022.
Following the pre-planning community consultation for the 41-59 Battersea Park Road site earlier this year Watkin Jones Group submitted a planning application to Wandsworth Council for the mixed-use redevelopment of Bookers Wholesale and the former BMW showroom – which has since been demolished – on Battersea Park Road. However, during the Council’s statutory consultation this summer residents raised a number of concerns about the submitted plans.
The developer is inviting local residents to a Resident Update event on Wednesday 30th November where they will be setting out how the scheme has changed in direct response to the community’s comments. Members of the project team will be there to talk you through the updated proposals.
The Resident Update event itself runs from 4pm until 8pm on Wednesday 30th November at the R.O.S.E. Community Clubroom at 22 Ascalon Street, London SW8 4AN.
Once the residents’ feedback has been reviewed, adjustments will be submitted to the current planning application. This will then trigger the Council to hold it own separate re-consultation where you will be given another opportunity to have your say on the future of this site.
