Lambeth Council has submitted a scoping report for an estate development scheme on the Clapham Road between Oval and Stockwell.
The South Lambeth Estate will be demolished, with the exception of Wimborne House, an eleven-storey Corbusierian slab block of maisonettes. In total 101 flats will be demolished and 104 will be retained.
In place of the 101 demolished flats, 336 will be built bringing on uplift of 235 homes to the estate. The majority of these will be in buildings between 3 and 6 storeys, although a 16 storey tower is proposed.
While the area isn’t in a high rise district, a single council tower block, Holland Rise House, designed by George Finch and 23 storeys tall, lies just across the Clapham Road.
Lambeth plan to submit a hybrid planning application with detailed plans for the first phase of the redevelopment, and outline plans which will require further applications for details on the later phases of redevelopment.
