Southwark Regeneration in Partnership Programme

Southwark Park Road Day Centre

Project details

The site is a former social care day centre which is now vacant. The Site borders Southwark Park Road, a relatively busy road, to the south with large mature trees lining the boundary between the road and site. Rights of light issues in relation to residential property to the north need to be accounted for within the massing envelope and window locations of the proposed development. Surrounding area is a mix of 2-3 storey residential properties of period terrace style directly to the south with 5-7 storey block style typologies to the north.

Consultation events

Initial Proposals (No. 1)

Initial consultation has been undertaken to establish the change of use. Once a development partner is appointed further consultations will be undertaken with stakeholders to provide a sustainable development scheme.

We're currently procuring for a development partner and once a development partner has been appointed, we'll consult again with local residents to develop a scheme. The site has been identified to provide a mixed tenure development to provide the following:

Social (council)

22

As per Southwark Design Guide (SDG)

Private

24

SDG minimum specification

Considerations

The site is located within the:

  • Urban Zone
  • Air Quality Management Area

There are no heritage assets:

  • within the site boundary
  • in the wider context of the site

The site is predominantly within an area of PTAL 4, providing a good level of access to public transport. Southwark Park Road is served by buses. Rail access at South Bermondsey, Surrey Quays and Bermondsey is within approximately 15 minutes walk.

Transport requirements and final layouts depend on whether D1 use is retained or B1 office (eg assuming the latter there's no need for minibus parking currently provided).

Final ITT has now been received and the evaluation is underway to select a development partner
