A planning application has been submitted to build a block of 120 new homes with a state-of-the-art library and medical centre as part of the Aylesbury Estate regeneration.
The development could replace a square of land, referred to as ‘Plot 18’ occupied by derelict homes, a sports area and a grassy bank, located between Thurlow Street, Dawes Street, and Inville Road.
The proposal includes a four-tiered block which is four, six, seven and fifteen storeys tall.
If approved by Southwark Council, the housing association behind the scheme, Notting Hill, have said roughly half of the new flats will be available at social rents or shared ownership.
Councillor Mark Williams, cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, said: “Southwark is committed to delivering quality, affordable new homes for local people, but the regeneration at Aylesbury is about much more than that. We also want to make a positive difference to the lives of the people who live on the estate, with better open spaces and community facilities such as this brand new library and health centre.
“I am very pleased to see proposals coming forward for this site at the heart of the estate that will really start to deliver these and become a central hub for the local community.”
