Planning proposals for 9,11 and 19 Osiers Road (Planning Reference 2018/3709)

Planning proposals for 9, 11 and 19 Osiers Road (planning application ref. 2018/3709) to be determined by the Mayor of London at a representation hearing at City Hall on 18 October 2019 at 9.30am.

The proposal

Planning permission is being sought for development of the above site with the following proposal:

Demolition of existing buildings, and erection of a mixed use development in buildings ranging in height between 10 and 14 storeys, with a two-storey linked element, to provide 3,653 sq.m. (GIA) of business (class B1) floorspace, with ancillary café (Class A3), and 152 sq.m. of flexible commercial floorspace for either A1 (retail), A2 (financial and professional services), A3 (restaurant), B1 (business), D1(non-residential institutions) or D2 (assembly and leisure) use, and 168 residential units with associated amenity space, including roof terrace and balconies, together with 10 disabled persons car parking spaces at basement level, and 374 cycle parking spaces, with the provision of landscaping and areas of public realm, and other associated works including highway improvements and provision of a new sub-station.

Following consideration of the planning application by the Council's Planning Applications Committee in April 2019, where committee members resolved to refuse planning permission, the Mayor of London has decided to 'call in' the application and to act as the local planning authority for the purposes of determining this application himself. This follows issuing of a direction under Article 7 of the Town and Country Planning (Mayor of London) Order 2008.

Since the Mayor's direction to act as local planning authority, the applicant has amended the proposal to increase the level of affordable housing being offered, so that all of the proposed 168 residential units (100%) are now proposed to be affordable housing units, with a tenure split of 45% London Affordable Rent and 55% London Shared Ownership.

A public Representation Hearing is due to be held in The Chamber at City Hal, London SE1 2AAl on 18 October 2019, starting at 9.30am, for the Mayor (Sadiq Khan) to consider this application in detail and to determine whether or not planning permission should be granted.
