Just received notice from Southwark Council that a developer has bought the site of the TNT depot on Pages Walk aka Marshall House, and is proposing 2 6 storey blocks of flats plus 1 4 storey block, totalling 130 new flats. This will be quite a big development, just behind Bridge View Court. My water pressure is not that brilliant now so I dread to think what it will be like once the residents move in ....
hi, has anyone seen any further update on the pages walk development on the current site of the TNT depot. I've not been able to confirm if planning permission has been granted. There were some workers 'drilling' on the empty site on grange road / pages walk a few weeks ago - does anyone know of plans to build on there?
Along with the site next to futura house and now on the courner of grange road and spa raod, it looks like its going to be a bit of a building site for the next couple of years.
Where exactly in the TNT depot? Is it that empty side next to Grange Road on the corner of Pages Walk?
Personally I think more flats is a good thing provided (a) they provide enough key-worker/affordable housing and (b) they make an effort to ensure amenities (such as water) aren't disrupted. People = a decent local economy, new shops and restaurants, etc. and increased safety.
I wonder if its because it looks like you have to allow access to the place behind it, which practivcally runs through the middle of the site. I predict that the whole light industrial units in the TNT/Plumb center will be raized to the ground beforre long for more 'luxery apartments'...although a developer friend tells me the Access storage building (ex Sarsons factory) will never be converted as storage is too lucrative to change its use.
As land price rise, it wouldn't suprise me if the light industrial units re-locate further away from Central London to make way for more flats. So far, I think the scheme in Bermondsey have been pretty good (I quite like the architecture of the Artesian building), I just hope the planners included green spaces and go for buildings with some architectural merit rather than just 'cram em in' towers.
