Shanly Homes has submitted plans for 55 homes in a seven storey building in Sutton, South London. The proposed homes would replace three houses and a dental surgery between Copse Hill and Grange Vale on Brighton Road, south of the town centre.
The plans have been submitted in outline format, meaning further applications will be needed for the precise appearance of the development. A single studio flat and a single three bed flat are proposed, alongside 23 one bed apartments and 30 two bed homes.
The uplift in homes for the site is quite substantial, something which is needed in the current housing crisis, and is supported contextually by the site being bordered by two mid rise blocks of eleven stories, indeed suggesting that a larger development on the plot would even be possible.
