Redwing Mews, London SE5
Client: Aspinwood Ltd/Redwing Coaches
Authority: London Borough of Lambeth
Working on behalf of Aspinwood Ltd, we secured planning permission for a high density, high quality development of 9 houses and 10 flats on the site of the former Redwing Coaches Depot in Coldharbour Lane, SE5. All the flats provide key worker housing for doctors and nurses and other staff at King's College Hospital, which is located nearby.
We convinced the London Borough of Lambeth that the land, hemmed in by housing, should not remain in ‘employment use’ any longer. We demonstrated that the then occupiers, Redwing Coaches, had a lawful use which enabled them to use the site for the parking and servicing of coaches on an unrestricted basis.
We also obtained planning permission for Redwing Coaches to move to a new purpose-built depot at Mahatma Gandhi Industrial Estate in Milkwood Road, Herne Hill, London SE24.
