Stop the Blocks in Kennington
Woodlands Nursing Home 1 Dugard Way London LONDON SE11 4TH
There is an open public consultation on the revised planning proposals called "Kennington Stage" which were submitted by the Lifestory Group and for which they are seeking planning permission. The Kennington Stage public consultation is being hosted and managed by Lambeth Planning Authority.
There is short amount of time for the public to make their comments. Full details of the planning application and a feedback/comments form can be found here
The developer has provided a leaflet to summarise their planning application
We want a lower density development that would protect the significance of the listed buildings, Conservation Areas and respect the prevailing building heights, density and massing of the surrounding residential properties.
An example of a more sensitive and proportionate development, a mixed and balanced community is already evident and it is possible as demonstrated by the Bellway/Water Tower Estate Development which is adjacent to the "Kennington Stage" proposal site.
There is a short window to comment on this LIVE PLANNINGG APPLICATION before Lambeth Council decide the application.
HAVE YOUR SAY
1) Inappropriate design, layout and density adversely affecting residential amenity
2) Detrimental impact on heritage assets and conservation areas
3) Impact on surrounding Kennington area
4) The current planning application does not address all of the six issues that the Planning Inspector raised with the previous proposal at the site and are a material consideration for this planning application

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

StB and its volunteers remain committed to working constructively with the developer and all parties to ensure any development proposal for the site reflects the matters that are important to the current and future residents in the community.
