Have your say on our proposals for local housing that supports a better Larkhall Park
Our five year Borough Plan sets out how we will make Lambeth a better place to live and work. As part of this we’ve looked at how our existing assets could better support local neighbourhoods.
A local group – The Friends of Larkhall Park; approached us with ideas to improve the park.
They proposed development on three council-owned sites along Courland Grove to generate income to help improve and maintain the park for the future.
We’ve developed these ideas and have the opportunity to create a new mixed residential and community use development. Such a scheme could generate revenue to support the park as well as other community services in the borough whilst creating a more attractive street environment and providing much needed local homes.
If you live, work or visit the Larkhall Park area (Larkhall ward) we want to find out more about what you think of the opportunity.

Engagement report – December 2017
The Council carried out engagement with local communities in June and July 2017 to hear residents’ views on developing the Larkhall Park Opportunity sites. Participants provided feedback on the Council’s proposals to examine alternative funding support for the park and gave their views on the indicative development proposal. The Council published the report from this engagement in December 2017.
Since the engagement exercise, the Council has published the project’s key objectives, set out in the Larkhall Park Opportunity Sites development principles – Cabinet Member Delegated Decision Report.
The Council is now preparing to launch a competitive procurement exercise for a development partner for the Larkhall Park Opportunity sites.
When a developer has been selected, the developer will enter into a pre-planning application process with the Local Planning Authority, which will include public engagement. Following the pre-app process, the developer will then submit a planning application for the sites, and residents and communities will have the opportunity to respond to the proposal.
Further information will be provided on the website in due course.
