The application to develop the Tennis Club site at the corner of Cheviot Road ( see our post dated 23/1/15 ) has been recently refused by the council. The main reason for refusal was the negative impact on older people’s homes in the Cheviot Gardens – now under construction. For details see the Decision Notice for application 14/06822 via Lambeth Planning Portal http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/planning-and-building-control/planning-applications-and-policies/viewing-current-planning
The council also turned down plans for the tyre shop site at the corner of Thurlow Park Road & Norwood Road ( see our post dated 8/9/2014). For details of the Decision Notice input 14/04151 to the Planning Portal. The planned 28 homes were considered to be too small with poor natural light & not enough privacy.
