Stop the blocks in Kennington

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Anthology London are consulting on proposals to build 258 units in a low-rise residential area which includes a proposed 29 storey tower block. There is also a strong possibility that there will be a 4 storey block, just 6.5 metres from the back of properties, particularly affecting those on Renfrew Road.

The planning application is expected to be submitted in late April/early May 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 ***
