This development is out of keeping with the low rise diverse community and there are woefully inadequate resources to support new communities including iver- subscribed schools and GPs, and insufficient parking and congested roads. In addition there are several other high density developments under discussion in the vicinity including in Gilbert Road and Renfrew Road. This CAN’T go on!

Generations of working class London families are being driven out of the area by such developments which is totally unjust.

London needs more affordable housing and Kennington needs more community spaces. Overall this proposal does not appear community minded with its high rise luxury flats and lack of green spaces.

I really do think that the area will benefit from redevelopment and the gas works is a good space to built on but with measure. The proposed architecture and prospective number of dwellings is excessive and needs rethinking, redesigning and aligning with the expectations and needs of the local community.

Too many London developments are standing empty because they are being bought as investments and are too expensive for even a two income average earnings family.

We need luxury homes for us ordinary people not even more homes for the rich to make huge profits from. The housing crisis is not about too few homes being built in London it’s about too few houses and flats that we can afford. Privitising council flats and houses has only led too even fewer homes for those who need homes. When Thatcher started this selling off she didn’t extend it to private rented accommodation just sold away the chance of a home for ordinary people on average wages. The developers are only interested in profit and making a profit from human need is sinful, disgusting and wrong. This must be stopped.

Thanks for adding your voice.

The proposal is completely out of keeping with the area. The towers are huge, so densely packed that there will be little light for flats at the bottom and terrible wind tunnels and the subsequent increase in traffic and use of amenities is more than Kennington can accommodate.
