Green light given for new 45-home development in London Borough of Lambeth
45 new homes are set to be built in South London after plans were given the go-ahead.
London Borough of Lambeth resolved to grant planning permission for a new scheme to be delivered by Henley Construct, a division of Henley Homes Group on behalf of housing association Optivo.
The 0.36-acre site sits on the corner of Norwood Road and Thurlow Park Road in Tulse Hill and currently contains two houses and a commercial unit for a car wash business.
Designed by Tigg Coll Architects, the four, five, six and seven storey development will provide a collection of 45 one, two and three bedroom homes with landscaping, amenity areas, disabled parking, cycle parking and refuse and recycling stores.
Aaron Usmani, director of construction at Henley Construct, commented: “The homes that sit on this site currently are in a poor state of repair, with alterations detracting from their original forms so we look forward to bringing back quality homes to this area of Tulse Hill and providing much needed affordable homes for the borough.
“This project has been a collaborative effort by the design, commercial, land and construction team at Henley, and is a result of tremendous hard work and tenacity as we strive to deliver high quality schemes.
“Quality and detail is critically important to us regardless of tenure - people deserve high quality housing regardless of whether they are renting or buying.”
Richard White, director of land and new business at Optivo, added: “We’re really excited to be working with Henley on this fantastic scheme. This development will be a positive addition to the area and we’re really proud to be part of it.
“We’ve a proven track record of delivering high quality homes and we remain ambitious, with plans to start 7,000 homes by 2025. At Optivo, we’re determined to do our bit to tackle the housing crisis and look forward to giving residents the keys to their new home in the near future.”
