There are currently proposals to build a 258-unit development including a 29-storey tower block on the former Woodlands Nursing home site (off Dugard Way in Kennington). If this one goes ahead, you will see more blocks being built in the area bordered by Kennington Lane, Kennington Road and St Georges Road.
There is now a limited amount of time to influence the development plans before an application is submitted this summer. It is vital that your voice and feedback is heard with regards to the proposals and that you feedback your comments.
The 29 storey tower is expected to be 98.25m (322 ft) tall. For comparisons , Big Ben is 96m tall (315 feet).

Survey and Feedback
Stop the Blocks Community Action Group (STB) undertook a survey to collect feedback on Anthology London’s proposed redevelopment (called “Kennington Stage”) of the former Woodlands nursing home on Dugard Way in Kennington. Anthology London presented proposals in April 2019 to construct 258 units on the small back land site in the form of a 3-4 storey mansion block and a 29-storey tower block.
Of the 188 respondents who participated in the STB survey:
1. 88.8% thought the development on the site was over intensive.
2. 89.9% thought that the proposed scale and landscaping did not enhance the site's history and public space around it.
3. 32% identified other issues that were not adequately addressed by the proposals and 28% thought none of the issues were addressed at all.
