Giffin Street Redevelopment

There are plans to redevelop the area between Giffin Street and Reginald Road in Deptford. They have now received a planning permission application.

  1.  Lewisham Planning Department’s web page on the proposal
  2.  The Lewisham Boro site dealing with the planning application, here…
  3. What I wanted to say is here…

What I actually said is,

I am a resident of 12, Hales St. (PLB)

1. The western boundary of the proposed buildings represent a loss of sunlight to those people in the PLB with east facing windows due to their proximity and height.

2. The access to the PLB trade and fire entrance would seem to be diminished.

3. It would seem that it is proposed to remove the tree at the South East corner of the PLB. This is a loss of amenity

4. It would seem that the car park, which can be used by visitors to PLB is to be redeveloped with no replacement. This represents a loss of amenity to local residents.

5. It would seem that the same car park which contains 4 electric recharging stations is to be redeveloped with no replacements. This represents a loss of amenity to local residents.

6. The proposed “park” replacement for the Tidemill Gardens are to be enclosed by buildings within the development, this represents a loss of amenity to the community at large.

This misses the fact that I consider the loss of amenity to No 1, Hales Street to be devastating, that I support the development and that all the objections can be met through replanning, but Leiwisham constrain public comment to 1000 characters.

Here is a view from one of my windows

Hales Sr

This was circulated,  a guide to objection to me later in the day, bother, better language but it still goes to show that 1000 characters is not enough. They suggest that, the policies that might be breached include,

  1. BUILDING MASSING
  2. LOSS OF PRIVACY AND OVERLOOKING
  3. PARKING PROVISION
  4. OVERALL IMPACT OF THE DEVELOPMENT
  5. ENVIRONMENT – CLIMATE CHANGE, BIO-DIVERSITY AND AIR QUALITY
  6. CLEAN AIR LONDON
  7. FLOOD RISK
  8. ACCESS TO GREEN SPACES

This is the area that the BBC’s Secret History of London’s Streets on Deptford High Street spoke. For more see, my ello message.

They’re also redeveloping around the station
