Southwark Council has submitted plans to build 88 new apartments entirely for affordable housing fronting Southwark Park. 70 of the new flats will be for social rent, with the remaining 18 for intermediate tenure.
Haworth Tompkins are behind the designs, which feature a courtyard block rising to 9 storeys on its tallest side. The scheme is part of a wider estate regeneration which will see the neighbouring Maydew House tower block extended by five storeys. The tower will see have a 61:39 split in favour of affordable homes, with this new application making up for the lost affordable units in the tower.
While the Bede Centre will not be replaced within the new development, over double the amount of community floorspace is planned within the base of the redeveloped Maydew House tower.
