Three giant plans are afoot in our area, so we need to be vigilant. The Brixton Society(www,brixtonsociety.org.uk )has dedicated volunteers who keep track of the many planning issues which may affect us. It is true on a local level just getting around Brixton even on foot people have to take care. With major building over the next few years at New Town Hall site and Oval House/ Brixton Green, the Effra residents area will soon be subject to earth moving and shaking.http://futurebrixton.org/
There are a lot of people who are monitoring developments and are concerned.w.brixtonbuzz.com/chat/Oval House’s Director Deborah Bestwick at a recent meeting stated that she had asked if some of the building supplies could be off-loaded via the rail network onto the sidings, this would at least have prevented some disturbance to an already stressed road system.
More localised planning has to be found on Lambeth website an for example: more plans for third floor roof terraces are at present listed awaiting consideration.
To check individuals can go to Lambeth Planning’s web site: http://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/application an click on view planning applications and put in the address or application number and there is a tick box where you can comment. The more comments the clearer the message. For example;
For 16/00258/FUL the site says the Neighbour Consultation Period Expiry Date is 8.2.2016
but the meeting considering this application is not immediate, so there may be time if you object, or want to comment.
