Southwark housing contracts awarded

Four practices have been given the green light to proceed with planning more than 150 homes by Southwark Council

The practices will oversee the redevelopment of five sites across the borough. Metaphorm, S333, Sarah Wigglesworth and Loates Taylor Shannon will all work alongside the council.

Southwark’s planning committee has granted permission to L&Q (London & Quadrant Housing Trust) for five housing sites around Elephant and Castle.

The housing schemes will incorporate approximately 162 homes, some of which will be designated as affordable housing, while others will be used to enable Heygate Estate residents to return to Elephant and Castle, after its regeneration.

Paul Noblet, Southwark Council executive member for regeneration, said: ‘This is a very important milestone and shows that the council’s commitment to the regeneration of Elephant and Castle is as resolute as ever.’

The planned sites include:
º Library Street and Brandon Street designed by Metaphorm
º New Kent Road designed by S333
º St Georges Road designed by Sarah Wigglesworth
º Townsend Street designed by Loates Taylor Shannon.
