- Lambeth Borough Council
- United Kingdom
We call for the development to be rejected because:
• The drastic loss of sun and daylight to residents in Whitgift House will place some residents in permanent darkness in the winter, increase their fuel and light bills, and have serious consequences for their quality of life
• The loss of sunlight and daylight to the Lambeth High Street Recreation Ground will have a detrimental effect on the quality of the park especially in winter months
• Less than 10% of the development is being put aside for affordable homes. This borough needs more social and affordable housing and not more housing for millionaires!
• The 138 exclusive car parking spaces are completely unnecessary in an area which has some of the best access to public transport in London and will increase traffic noise and pollution in local streets
We want a development that respects local residents, the amenities and character of our neighbourhood, including the listed buildings and other heritage assets of this area.
We, the undersigned, call on the democratically elected councillors of Lambeth's planning committee to stand up for the tenants and residents of Lambeth and reject the proposed development at 8 Albert Embankment.
