New homes at Old Kent Road area

More than 1,600 new homes for Old Kent Road have been approved this month. The council’s planning committee gave approval for 2 major planning applications. The new homes include 162 at social rent. As a result of this, the amount of social housing set to be delivered in the area is over 1,300.

Malt Street

The Malt Street regeneration is the first development. Southwark planning committee has given approval for 1,300 new homes for the site at the north end of Old Kent Road. The project includes 48 intermediate homes as well as 83 social rented homes.

There is also affordable retail space in the application for the work. The council’s planning committee approved the application at the beginning of June. However, this is subject to referral to the Secretary of State.

The new development consists of 11 buildings which range from 5 to 44 storeys. 40% of the housing will be affordable. Originally the plan was only 20% affordable so the much higher number is great for the area. A minimum of 25% of the homes will be social rent.

Verney Road

This is the site of the second development. The committee decided to approve an additional 338 homes, subject to referral to the Mayor of London. These include 33 intermediate rent and then 79 social rented homes. There will be three different buildings with 18, 19, and 24 storeys. The development will also offer workspaces and have great landscaping.
