Here’s a roundup of six small new build projects from across London that have made it into the planning system’s public realm within the past week. Four of them include demolishing existing residential properties for suburban densification, an increasingly common way of delivering homes in London from small developers.
4 Storey, 9 Flat & 4 Retail Unit Scheme in South Wembley
Plans in to demolish a mixed retail and residential building on Ealing Road and replace it with a significantly larger mixed use scheme containing four retail units – one of quite a large size taking up the entire first floor – with nine flats above.
13 Flat Replacement for Croydon Butchers
Plans in to replace a butchers shop on Frith Road with a new four storey building with 11 two bed and 2 one bed flats, plus a commercial unit on the ground floor.
8 Flats in 3 Storey Building on Birkbeck Road, Sidcup
Two semi-detached houses, currently organised as four flats, are proposed for demolition to make way for eight new build flats in Sidcup. We particularly liked the copper-green roof in this project, which is also featured in the photo at the top of the post.
5 Flats Replacing House in Shortlands
Outline plans submitted to replace a house on Cumberland Road in the borough of Bromley with a new building containing five flats.
5 Intermediate-Tenure Flats in New Cross Backlands Scheme
Plans in to demolish an unused single storey backlands building on Hatcham Park Mews in New Cross Gate and replace it with a three-storey building providing five flats, all of which will be for the intermediate market – perhaps for shared ownership or intermediate rent.
9 Apartment House-Replacement in Belmont
Plans have been lodged with Sutton Council to demolish a house and build a new nine flat replacement, eight of which will be two bedrooms and the final flat will have three beds, ensuring the site still provides family-sized accomodation.
