Planning submitted for Lambeth 115 flats

Bellway Homes has submitted a planning submission for 115 flats at the largely derelict Lambeth Hospital site to Lambeth Council.

Permission is also sought to change the use of the Water Tower to residential and to build 33 Affordable and 86 privately owned flats.

Ten per cent of the units are designed for wheel chair users and all are designed as Lifetime Homes.

The focal point of the site is a Victorian Water Tower and architect Amos Partnership’s design responds to the axes of the Tower and the entrance to the site. It is proposed that the Tower itself will be extended and refurnished to become a unique high end residence.

The development is bounded on all sides and shares the site with a listed building. The building blocks have been designed in layers to allow steps in their mass form and share common detailing and window proportions to bind the development as a whole.

The development will improve permeability through the site by creating new pedestrian links and work is due to start on site in April 2008.
