Local councillors to oppose development



Developers have submitted their application to redevelop the Fire Brigade's buildings at 8 Albert Embankment, Whitgift Street, and the corner of Black Prince Road and Newport Street.

You can see all the details of the plans on Lambeth's Planning Database

Local councillors were surprised to be told that only 32 of the 360 proposed flats will be affordable. Lambeth's target for all new buildings is 50%.

Councillor Mark Harrison said 'we are planning to oppose this development, as 10% is a derisory proportion of affordable housing. New developments need to benefit everybody in Lambeth, and not just provide private flats for wealthy people. We understand that the developers are paying for a refurbished fire station, but we don't think this is an excuse for not providing affordable housing.'
