Developers have submitted another planning application to build seven bedsits and three 1-bed flats on the former workshops in Curnicks Lane SE27 0UT between Chapel Rd and Linton Grove.
You can see the plans & comment by inputting ref 20/04185/P20 at the Lambeth Planning portal. Deadline for comments is Wednesday 6th January.
This planning application is being made under the new brownfield site rules.
To be eligible for the new rules the site must previously have been in use as Class B1 (office, research or light industrial). Last month the developers submitted planning application 20/03846 to prove to the council that the last use of this site was light industrial (B1c).
The government is continuing to cut back on planning rules and give the council and local people less say over developers plans. This is one of the first planning applications in Lambeth made under the new brownfield site permitted development rights. If the developers submitted a standard planning application they would have to meet Lambeth’s agreed policies on minimum size of homes, children’s play space etc.

Dodbrooke – Hainthorpe corner
Developers were refused planning permission by Lambeth council to demolish the building at the corner of Hainthorpe Road SE27 0PL and Dodbrooke Rd and build a block 8 flats and 5-bedroom house.
The developer has asked the Independent Planning Inspector to review this decision.
To comment on the developer’s appeal you must submit comments or “representations” to the Planning Inspectorate by 5pm on Wednesday 2nd December. Log into the planning inspectorate website at https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk and then search for the case using reference number 3259238.
All of the application and appeal documents are available on the Council’s planning database. To view them, go to https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/ and search for reference number 19/04189/FUL.
A planning application for 4 flats and a detached 4-bed house was approved in 2018 for the same site.
The government is keen to loosen the Planning rules and give more say to developers. For more details see:
