Planning Committee Submission

Submission to Wandsworth Borough Council

43-45 Parkgate Road, 2016/5392

The Battersea Society objects to this application for change of use from retail to office use.  Such a change would be to the detriment of the neighbourhood and would sit unhappily with plans for this area to be an active focal point for this part of Battersea.

We are further concerned because a number of applications to change office space to residential have been granted for units in Ransome’s Dock and elsewhere in Parkgate Road.  In those cases the applicants have presumably made the case that this change is necessary due to lack of demand for office space.

There is, however, clearly a demand for retail space and an active community wishing to retain shops in Parkgate Road.

We trust this application will be refused and that a suitable retailer will be found for these premises.
