On Wednesday Lambeth Council's planning committee rejected an application from developers to build a 23 storey tower on the site of 81 Black Prince Road.
One of the main reasons for the rejection was the effect the building would have on light levels for neighbouring buildings, particularly Blocks B and C at the back of 9 Albert Embankment. Councillors were also concerned that the building was too high and would create a sense of enclosure in the area.
Labour campaigners delivered a letter from Councillor Steve Morgan informing residents of the news. Steve said 'I'm pleased that residents' objections have been heard by the Planning Committee, and that a building that was clearly too high and too dense for the site will not be built. I'm looking forward to working with residents, the Council, and any future developers to ensure that the site is redeveloped in a way that we can all be satisfied with.'
