Where: Herne Hill Road, SE24

Who For: Peabody

What: 134 homes and 4,150 sqm of commercial floorspace 

Architect: PRP

This site is located south of Loughborough Junction station between Herne Hill Road, Hinton Road and Coldharbour Lane.  Planning permission was originally secured for this site in 2015 by a speculative developer.  Peabody secured the site, but needed to make a number of changes to deliver a viable scheme which met their high quality standards.

As a result, a new team was instructed, which came up with a new scheme, with a small increase in the number of homes and level of commercial space, but which saw the maximum height increase from 8 to 16 storeys.  

The proposals are for a mixed-use scheme including 134 new homes with 50% affordable provision and commercial space. The scheme will also deliver improvements to the public realm with open access to the arches and a courtyard for residents at podium level.

Following detailed discussions with the GLA and the London Borough of Lambeth, planning permission was secured for the new scheme in December 2020.
