11,000 New Council Homes - St Vincent House & Woodville House garages

Closed 27 Jan 2019

Opened 10 Dec 2018

Overview

Southwark Council has made a historic commitment to deliver 11,000 new homes in Southwark by 2043, with 2,500 delivered by 2022. To make this a success we need to know what residents think and make sure residents shape our proposals. This is the key to the delivery of quality housing that improves the local area and the lives of Southwark residents.

As part of our commitment, we are considering the development of new homes on two sites on the St Saviour's Estate -

  • St. Vincent House has a block of 22 garages;
  • Woodville house has a block of 11 garages, parking spaces and pram sheds.

A drop-in consultation event was held on 29th November 2018 at Magdalen Hall, SE1 3DQ.  See below for the display boards which the architects have drawn up to outline their initial proposal.

 

       

Why We Are Consulting

We want to consult with residents and create opportunities for them to meet and discuss the plans with the architects, council officers and with the contractors who will eventually be employed to build the scheme, through drop-in meetings, newsletters and project group meetings. The project group meetings are an opportunity for a small committee of affected residents  and the local TRA to comment on key issues and  local priorities related to the development.

 

 

What Happens Next

Our architects are developing the plans and are taking into account the issues which were raised in your feedback. We are also commissioning further surveys to inform the design. A new homes project group has been set up for the St.Vincent House garages, and a first meeting to discuss the plans was held at the end of February. There is no project group for the Woodville House site; however an open drop-in event will be arranged for local residents to view the designs before they are submitted for planning approval.
