Stop the blocks in Kennington

Anthology London are consulting on proposals to build 258 units in a low-rise residential area which includes a proposed 29 storey tower block and a 4 storey block which will be just 6.5 metres from the back of some properties. Sign up to our campaign for a more proportionate development for all Londoners.

The planning application is expected to be submitted in before the end of the summer of 2019. There is very little time left to influence development plans.

Suggested points :

  • Unacceptable height, massing and proximity to existing residences with daylight, sunlight, privacy and wind tunnel impacts.
  • Unacceptable impact on setting of listed buildings (Water Tower and Masters House Cinema Museum ), Brook Drive Conservation Area and wider Kennington townscape.
  • Site is outside of the dense Elephant and Castle hub area of tall buildings.
  • Not in line with Lambeth council's local plan and emerging new London Plan policies e tall buildings.
  • Unacceptable long term impact on any new and existing community from overcrowding and densely populating a low rise urban area in Kennington.
  • Unacceptable transport impacts from deliveries and impacts on stretched local services eg GP surgeries, schools
  • Poor, developer led consultation, not in pain English with leading questions and limited local publicity and involvement 

We want a lower density development that would protect the significance of the listed buildings, conservation areas and respect the prevailing building heights, density and massing of the surrounding residential properties.
