Application to convert Manor Avenue club into housing

Following the rejection of plans to turn 60 Manor Avenue in to a nursery, an application has been made to convert the former United Services Club in to two large houses, with accompanying studio space. The application summary is:

The external alteration, extension and change of use of the social club at 60 Manor Avenue SE4, to provide 1 four bedroom and 1 five bedroom houses, together with demolition of approximately two thirds of the club building at the rear and the alteration and conversion of the remaining portion of the hall at the rear of the site into 2 workshops/studios for the use of the occupiers of the aforementioned residential units.

The original proposal was met by fierce opposition from residents on the street, primarily on the basis of the impact it might have on local parking and congestion.

With thanks to 'Slimewad'.

Intersting proposal, probably better than a nursery but hard to judge what they want to do as there are no supporting documents on the Lewisham website. How are they going to turn what was a single dwelling into 2 separate, large houses? Where's the second front door going to be? What are they planning to demolish?

Nursery would have been far more useful but at least they are proposing houses rather than flats which is better than the average development proposal around here

Shame I was hoping somebody would put in an application for a glue factory to punish the nursery nay-sayers.

Brockley could do with a dripping factory

It certainly makes a change from the usual "conversion of existing single dwelling into 7 one bedroom and 3 one and a half bedroom units..." ;)

Doesn't seem like a developer's proposition - seem to remember there was some debate over who actually owned it, did we ever get to the bottom of that?

I find that the parking situation in Brockley has worsen since the start of the ELL.

There seem to be more Vans and Cars parked on the streets around the station that do not belong to residents.

Large houses that keep getting converted in flats and smaller units will add to the problem.

There was a meet the manager session for the ELL at Brockley this evening.

Anon, I suspect that at least some of that phenomenon may be due to the gasworks around Brockley Cross which have been going on for three months and which have forced the Brockley Cross van hire company to park on other streets nearby.

The drawings showing the proposals are now up on the site and available for viewing.

Shame we were unable to accept a scheme which would have created some employment in the Conservation area.
