Planning Committee Submission

Submission to Wandsworth Borough Council

2 Shuttleworth Road, Sphere Studios – 2015/2963

The Battersea Society was pleased to have the opportunity to review the plans on site and are grateful for the time given to our visit. 

In general we are happy for the plans to be assessed by the Council taking neighbours’ views into account.

We do object to the quantity and type of affordable housing proposed.  Just 13 intermediate units, 17% of the whole, is totally inadequate.  The developers would have been well aware of council policy when buying the site and we find it hard to see how their decisions can be justified in the light of this knowledge. 

We also consider that either social rented or affordable rented units should be offered rather than intermediate purchase units.
