Braganza Street SE17

Braganza Street

Proposed development

Project details

The proposal seeks to redevelop the site to provide 33 residential units in a mixture of flats, maisonettes and houses contained in five blocks of between three- and five storeys. A sixth block would provide Class B1 floor space over three-storeys. Four of the five blocks on the main part of the site would be set around a central garden courtyard that would include paving, planting, trees, seating and play equipment, with the vehicle access retained onto Braganza Street, and a new pedestrian entrance proposed onto Doddington Grove.

This application is part of the Southwark Regeneration in Partnership Programme (SRPP), which together with other programmes within the council seek to deliver more affordable housing within the borough. The proposed housing mix is as follows:

  • 5  intermediate units
  • 28 private units
  • commercial units :(Use Class C3) ; 428sqm of workspace (Use Class B1)
  • associated landscaping, disabled car parking, cycle parking and public realm works

The existing building will be demolished and the new development will be brick work construction with pre-cast concrete copings, colored render to the recessed balconies, and PPC finish aluminum windows, entrance doors and balcony railings.

All the units would have private amenity space; the ground floor units would have private gardens; and the upper units would have balconies or roof terraces. Six wheelchair adaptable units are proposed and three wheelchair car parking spaces near to the Braganza Street entrance to the site. The houses in Blocks A and E would have their own individual bin and cycle stores, while the other blocks would have communal refuse storage in Block F and cycle stores within the blocks and gardens of the duplexes. Block F would provide 428sqm GIA office floor space (Class B1) in a three-storey building, with a pitched roof.
