Proposals are being drawn up for new housing, improved public realm and an enhanced, re-located Nursery & Children’s Centre on the Ethelred Estate along Lollard Street.
The proposals for Lollard Street include:
· Removal of the existing podium structure at the base of the Ethelred Towers
· New homes, provided through a mixture of houses and apartments
· New pedestrian routes and improved street level access
· Enhanced security with clearer sight lines and fewer enclosed areas
· Open space and landscape enhancements throughout the site, with improved amenity space and new trees and other planting
· New landscaped gardens
· A new building for the Ethelred Nursery, with more space, improved access and courtyard garden
Following the public exhibition held earlier this year, and focussed meetings with local stakeholders, the design team have been reviewing and progressing the proposals in response to feedback. Full details of the scheme proposals will be shown at the consultation event.
Some of the key issues considered include:
· Availability of new affordable units. Lambeth have agreed a local lettings strategy
· A reduction of the proposed number of new homes on site
· Better permeability and sight lines through the site
· Quality and maintenance of landscaping
· Access to open spaces for existing residents
