Make wins appeal for £65 million Southwark scheme

Ken Shuttleworth’s practice Make has won planning permission for this 154-apartment scheme in Southwark, south London following an appeal

Originally rejected by planners due to concerns about the impact of the £65 million development on the character and appearance of the Tanner Street area, the scheme was given the rubberstamp by Secretary of State inspectors who concluded the ‘building was of a high quality design and made the best use of the site’.

In the appeal decision notice, government inspector John Papworth said: ‘The development would provide much needed housing, and particularly family units, and would make efficient use of land, replacing unattractive buildings and uses that no longer sit well within this improving residential area … the appeal scheme represents an improvement over an already acceptable solution for the site, introducing additional benefits to the public realm as well as to residents’. (ref Appeal Decision APP/A5840/A/10/2124674)

Backed by London & Quadrant (L&Q) Housing Association, the curved mixed-use development steps up from five to 10 storeys and is now expected to start on site next year (2011).
