Hadley and Latimer Joint Venture Secures Planning Approval for Mixed-Use Development in Streatham Vale, Lambeth.

Second permission achieved in a month for Hadley and Latimer with the approval of 100 Woodgate Drive proposals.
Published Fri 5 Apr 2024

The Hadley Latimer joint venture, a strategic partnership between Hadley Property Group and Latimer, the development arm of Clarion Housing Group, is delighted to announce that the Lambeth Planning Applications Committee has approved the proposal for the redevelopment of 100 Woodgate Drive, Streatham.

The Streatham Vale scheme will see the redevelopment of 100 Woodgate Drive, currently occupied by a large Homebase retail store and a car park, to create a new residential-led, mixed-use development in the heart of Streatham. The scheme will deliver 237 new homes, providing 35% affordable housing with 52 homes for Social Rent and 29 for Shared Ownership.

Split across four new buildings ranging from 4-14 storeys, the development will also provide a new fit-for-purpose home for Streatham Vale GP surgery at ground level. Twice as large as its current home, the surgery expects this increase in space to facilitate an initial uplift in patient numbers from 10,300 to 13,000, with capacity for further uplift in the future.

The development will be car-free and includes the provision of an innovative cycle hub. Residents will also have access to 3 years of free membership to a car club, encouraging more shared, active, and sustainable modes of transport. The buildings have been designed to minimise carbon emissions, with high thermal efficiency and low-energy heat-pump technology. On-site biodiversity is also improved through extensive new landscaping, including the planting of over 100 new trees.

We are delighted to see that the London Borough of Lambeth aligns with our collective commitment to high-quality mixed-use development on brownfield sites in London. To meet the city’s acute housing shortage, it's more important than ever for the private sector, Housing Associations and Local Authorities to work together to deliver the homes that London so desperately needs.

CEO, Hadley Property Group

Throughout the planning period and despite barriers faced due to COVID-19, our team have engaged with a wide breadth of community, business and political stakeholders, evolving our proposals to reflect the needs and aspirations of the area. We’re proud to bring forward a scheme that delivers much-needed housing for Lambeth, whilst helping to reinvigorate a brownfield site, boosting the local economy and creating cleaner, greener spaces.

We welcome the committee's approval for the Streatham Vale development. This development is an important contribution to addressing Lambeth's housing needs and provides a significant improvement to local healthcare infrastructure with the new facility for Streatham Vale GP surgery.

At Latimer, our commitment to providing affordable and sustainable homes is reflected in this development and with yesterday’s decision, we look forward to progressing with construction.
