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.You can download a copy of the survey report and findings below.
