Three tower blocks  for Knollys?

The council is consulting on a major new policy direction for West Norwood & Tulse Hill and proposes three residential towers in the land known Knollys Goods Yard or Knollys Triangle or Site 19.

The policy for Site 19  proposes to build a car free scheme of 400 homes above “clean” industrial units on the land off Knollys Rd. This is currently an industrial site  between 3 railway lines accessable only from Cameron Place.

The new homes will help meet Lambeth’s target of 1,300 new homes a year. A target of 50% affordable homes on Site 19 means it would contribute to  helping house the 30,000 households on the council’s housing waiting list.

Three towers are proposed: one of 20 storeys and two of 10 storeys.  See picture of proposed view from Tulse Hill station

Two new bridges are proposed to improve access : a footbridge to Leigham Vale and a new road bridge from Knollys Rd close to York Hill. See map below.

For details and to have a say see: https://lambethsadpdsite19.commonplace.is/  The deadline is Monday February 21st.

The council is consulting on 14 similar major sites across the borough.

This policy setting stage would be followed by planning applications submitted and consulted in the normal way.
