Stop the Blocks in Kennington
Lifestory Group has provided Stop the Blocks Community Action Group with a copy of a presentation of their proposed initial design solutions for the former Woodlands nursing home site.
The Planning Inspectorate dismissed their original plan to build 258 units comprising of a 29 storey block and lower mansion block.
Stop the Blocks Community Action Group (StB) in an open and collaborative effort worked with Lifestory Group (the developer of the Woodland Nursing Home site), Lambeth Planning and elected representatives (Councillors Jon Davies, Joanne Simpson and David Amos) and we have been running an exercise to share information and facilitate discussions on the initial design proposals for the former Woodlands nursing home site on Dugard Way with the local community.
On 29 June 2021 Lifestory Group put forward its initial revised design solutions for the former Woodlands nursing home site on Dugard Way in Kennington. The developer has arrived at these initial design solutions following discussions with Lambeth Planning. Lifestory has developed a presentation for resident's information and you can download an updated version of the presentation HERE
