Rye Hill Park Southwark - Planning Permission Granted

There are moments in your career which seem to stand out more than others and act as reminders that the process of design is as important as the finished product.

 

Last Wednesday evening Southwark council committee members voted unanimously for permission to grant for 10 affordable family homes and a new pocket park in an abandoned piece of land in Peckham.  

ā€‹

The Housing scheme which I have lobbied for over the past 24 months is the first I have designed as a recently established practice and one which is close to my heart. 

ā€‹

Iā€™m born and bred in Southwark and still live in the borough so this project in many ways is very much close to home and I consider it a great honor to have the opportunity to contribute to this community. 

 

The scheme is set in perhaps the most constrained and complicated site I have worked on to date. Given this, I was encouraged by the commitment and engagement of the ward councilor and committee members, who assessed the scheme with great sensitivity. 

ā€‹

An exciting road lays ahead, I look forward to seeing this scheme built and making a contribution to the provision of well-designed affordable housing, a cause which I am thoroughly committed to.
