Application for 20 storey tower at 86-96 Garratt Lane

In 2017 an application was made for this mainly residential tower in the town centre on a small site between “Pocket Living” and Garratt Lane, and alongside the Wandle. The application – with subsequent minor amendments – is now close to being determined. With large petitions from resident groups and over a hundred individual objections, including those from the Wandsworth Society and the MP, the outcome looks interesting. Yet another new residential tower in Wandsworth Town Centre? Or power to the people? Wandsworth Council application 2017/0535.

Planning Application Objection Letter: B&Q Swandon Way

On 22nd December 2017, The Wandsworth Society has submitted an objection to Wandsworth Council regarding Planning Application No 2017/0580 (B&Q Swandon Way)

Letter of Objection

Addendum 1 – Detailed comment on the loss of trees.

We do so principally because we consider the proposed development is excessive and contrary to the current London and Local Plans:
• the buildings are too tall
• the density of development is too great
• local infrastructure will be overstretched
• the loss of trees is unjustified.
