Alan Camp wins planning in Bermondsey after alternative scheme is dumped

  • Comment
South London-based practice Alan Camp Architects (ACA) has been given the go-ahead for this £6.5 million residential development in Bermondsey.

The scheme in Southwark for developer Inner Circle will create 54 apartments, varying in size from one to three bedrooms.

The plans include a piece of public artwork which will cover the 'flank wall' of the largest, seven-storey block. A public competition will be launched with Southwark College to find a suitable image.

Earlier proposals for the site - a student housing scheme drawn up by another architect for Berkeley Homes - had been met with widespread opposition and was eventually ditched.

Project architect Alex Wythe said: '[Our practice] held pre-consultative meetings with local residents, planners and the ward councillor and we feel that this was essential to enable the scheme to be favourably received.

'The previous scheme, by a different developer and architect, received more than 700 objections and was refused planning despite going to appeal.'

He added: '[Ours] received only three objections and none of the objectors attended the committee hearing.'
