Approval Achieved for Clapham Southside Development


The redevelopment of four acre, enclosed, brownfield site in Clapham has gained unanimous support from Lambeth Council Planning Committee. The residential-led, mixed-use scheme will transform the industrial site, safeguarding and increasing the current employment provision and creating 297 new homes.

The site has a single access point onto Clapham Common South Side and sits between the Notre Dame Estate and Lambeth College. Currently underused, with buildings that are no longer fit for purpose, the site is enclosed and separated from the community. The proposals open up the site creating accessible and welcoming spaces surrounded by striking contemporary architecture and beautifully landscaped gardens and walkways.

“We are very pleased that this major scheme achieved unanimous support at the recent Lambeth Planning Committee meeting. The members of the committee praised the design which is a testament to our commitment to achieve high quality architecture working in partnership with our team including client, London Realty, Lambeth Council, the GLA and the local community.”
Steve Harvey, Director, Rolfe Judd

A pedestrianised street runs the length of the irregular, linear site and commercial space is adjacent to the single access point

Six new buildings, ranging from four to ten storeys in height, landscaped gardens, a public square and walkways are proposed. An existing waste transfer facility, which needed to be retained, is hidden away at basement level. Flexible office space is adjacent to the entrance and provides a range of size options, with a ground floor café facing onto the new public square.

The development will provide new jobs, homes and public spaces for the community to share and enjoy. For further information see our Clapham Southside project page.
