Sorry for the very late notice with this but I have only become aware of it myself. Did anyone know there is a live planning application (consultation ended YESTERDAY but the Southwark website states comments may still be considered as they make their decision) which backs right onto the edge of Burgess Park
? There aren't any public notices on the property, street or the park.
Reference is 17/AP/1723. Details here - https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=_STHWR_DCAPR_9572741
It's for Parkhouse St (between Wells Way and Southampton Way). It's currently a disused warehouse. The proposal is for a 5 story commercial building on Parkhouse St and a 9 story residential building on the Burgess Park
edge. The developer is Southwark, it's one of their quick win sites. Will provide 32 new flats with 10 social and 2 intermediate but they want to build it right on the boundary of the park with the flats overlooking the park.
I'd be gutted if they were able to do this. It would set the precedent of building monstrosities right on the park. Please take a look and comment if you feel appropriate. Thanks.
