Residential redevelopment of former Keybridge House including provision of new two-form entry primary school campus.
This project involves the comprehensive redevelopment of Keybridge House, formerly a telecommunications centre occupied by BT, to provide a mixed use development comprising full planning permission for 595 new dwellings, 2,652 sqm of employment floorspace (Class B1), 802 sqm of retail (Classes A1-A5), associated basement car parking, new public realm and open space and new two-form entry primary school campus (Class D1). The proposals were the subject of extensive pre-application discussions between the council’s officers, the applicant and their consultant team(s) prior to the submission of the formal planning application in 2013. In addition to the development proposals mentioned above, a wide range of planning benefits have been secured by the council as part of the planning permission (under S106) for the local community, which includes affordable homes, financial contributions towards public realm improvements, employment and skills and zero carbon measures. A further £3.2 million will also be secured under Lambeth’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) towards infrastructure needs in the Borough.
