187-191 Clapham Road update: Planning Hearing, 29 September

A local resident on Clapham Road writes to says that Lambeth have called a 4-day Planning Hearing regarding Lidl/Crest Nicholson’s plans for 187-191 Clapham Road, which starts at 10am on 29 September at Lambeth town hall, in front of a government planning Inspector. We have a number of concerns on this blog about the development.

"Anyone wishing to speak to the hearing must be present when the hearing opens.

As you may recall, Lidl and the developer Crest Nicholson want to demolish the existing buildings on the site and build five storeys with a supermarket on the ground floor and 68 fats above, with 30 parking spaces for Lidl customers and 2 disabled parking spaces. Lambeth rejected the application but Lidl/Crest Nicholson are appealing, hence this hearing.

You are entitled to see documents relating to the appeal held by Lambeth; contact Gavin Chinniah at Lambeth Panning Division, Phoenix House, Wandsworth Road (by the Vauxhall bus station and St George Wharf development at Vauxhall Cross) or on 020 7926 1257.

If you would like to receive a copy of the Inspector’s decision, you have to ask in writing for one to be sent to you: quote reference APP/N5660/A/09/2105472 and write to: The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/19, Eagle Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol BS1 6PN."
