Faced with a lack of money for refurbishment and a serious shortage of genuinely affordable homes, in Nov 2015 Lambeth’s cabinet decided to go ahead with the partial redevelopment of Knight’s Walk. Lambeth wrote to every household to confirm that this decision agrees the demolition of 18 of the low rise homes with the surrounding properties retained.
We are now begining the design development stage of the regeneration. In order to work towards a design which you, the residents, are happy with we will be doing all we can to ensure that you are:
informed about what is happening, involved in the process, so that you can; influence what happens next.
Notices from Lambeth: An Initial Demolition Notice
In June, the 18 homes directly affected by the redevelopment will receive what is called a demolition notice. It is a legal requirement to send this to you now, however demolition is unlikely to begin before 2019.
Public Events: Design Principles 01/06/16
This exhibition will set out the design standards that will be met by every new home that we build. We would like to invite you to come along and find out more and meet the team from Tibbalds Campbell Reith Joint Venture.
Things you will see: site surveys
These surveys will look at things like the condition of the ground, the contours of the land and existing features on the estate. This is to make sure that when building work starts there are no unexpected issues which could slow this down.
Knight's Walk Activities: Design Meeting #1 06/06/16
There will be regular meetings to involve you in the design development stage. In the first meeting we will discuss your priorities moving forward, as well as how you can influence the planning application and any concerns you may have.
