Shakespeare Wharf Site: Proposed Redevelopment

Urban and Provincial invite Herne Hill residents to an upcoming public exhibition about proposals for the redevelopment of the Shakespeare Wharf Waste site on Shakespeare Road.

Urban and Provincial are bringing forward proposals to relocate the existing waste site on Shakespeare Road and to redevelop the site for housing with additional employment space. It is proposed that the existing waste apportionment at Shakespeare Road will be relocated to the West Norwood Car Breakers site on Windsor Grove, which falls in a Key Industrial Business Area. That site will be upgraded to deliver a modern metal recycling and vehicle de-pollution facility.

Having had pre-application meetings with planning officers at Lambeth, they believe the Shakespeare Road site can accommodate:

• Over 200 new homes including 35% classified as affordable housing, in line with the Council’s policy • Provision for employment space • Significant public realm improvements, both on the site and at its boundary to create an improved environment and quality of life for residents neighbouring the site.

The public exhibition events displaying their proposals for the Shakespeare Road site to the local community will be held on the following dates and times:

• Thursday 5th December, 5pm – 8pm, Moorlands Community Centre, 58 Corry Drive, Brixton, SW9 8QT • Friday 6th December, 11am – 3pm, Moorlands Community Centre, 58 Corry Drive, Brixton, SW9 8QT

At that event, members of the project team will be there to talk people through the proposals and to answer any questions. It will also provide an opportunity to leave feedback on the scheme.
