Streatham Action's response to planning regarding the Woodgate Proposals.
Streatham Action wishes to make the following comments / objection to application on behalf of Streatham Community members, based on comments received;
Whilst we agree that there is a need for more affordable housing that is sensitively and appropriately designed and built, we and the majority of residents feel that this development falls far short of that standard.
1. Towers of this height in this area is not in keeping with Lambeth's planning policy Q26 on tall buildings. Streatham Vale is not an area identified as appropriate for tall buildings according to Lambeth planning policy. The developer does not offer a clear and convincing justification nor demonstrate the appropriateness of the site for a tall building.
2. The protected panoramic views from Streatham Common (Lambeth planning policy Q25) will be devastated by these towers having a negative impact on the whole area and community
3. The design and scale of the four towers is completely out of keeping with the character of Streatham Vale.
4. Due to the overwhelming height and scale of the proposed towers on this site in a residential area, many local properties and a vast number of local residents will be severely negatively impacted through overshadowing, overlooking and an undue sense of enclosure
5. With 258 new homes on this site there will be reliance on public highways to meet the parking requirements (contravention of planning policy T6) in an area that is already recognised as being under high parking stress
6. Only a very small proportion of this proposed development appears designated for affordable housing which is an unacceptably low proportion to justify the overwhelmingly negative impacts and breaches of planning policy that granting the application would entail.
7 There will be undue additional pressure on local infrastructure (congestion and parking, transport - Streatham Common station is considered 6th busiest station out of over 150 on the local network) and public services (health, education, social care)
