A consultancy firm’s plans to redevelop its Borough office and demolish a nineteenth-century warehouse have been given the green light.
PwC submitted plans to replace its existing four-storey 1980s building at 10-18 Union Street with a new building up to six storeys in height.
The development will also involve the demolition of a nineteenth-century former hop warehouse tucked away behind the 1980s building.
The buildings are within the boundary of the Borough High Street Conservation Area.
The proposed scheme includes office space, as well as retail space.
It will be car-free, with 94 cycle parking spaces – including 83 for long stay and 11 for visitors.
The plans were approved by the casting vote of chair Cllr Nick Dolezal, after a tied vote among members of Southwark’s planning committee.
