Lambeth Council values the green spaces and we would seek to minimise the impact of new developments and re-provide any amenity spaces that are lost within Hemans Estate. Two of the sites being considered may have an impact on existing communal gardens and we are constantly amending our proposals in response to resident comments. These are possible options at this stage and we want to hear your views on this.
At Lockyer House and Charman House, some residents are concerned about security for the communal garden and increased activity along Pascal Road when the new Nine Elms London Underground station is built. We are proposing to build a low (one-storey) wall with secure gates at each end, to enclose the garden for resident access only. To the North we are proposing to build a small block of flats (site G) to give this aspect of the garden a ‘front’ towards the new underground station, also improving security. All of our proposals will be subject to a daylight, sunlight and rights of light study, to ensure that there is no significant negative impact on existing houses.
At the boundary of the communal garden at Hunter House and Darlington House (site C), we are proposing a terrace of five two-storey houses that would be accessed via the disused boiler room. This would increase security, deter non-residents from entering the green space and increase activity in this currently under-used garden.
