Malpas Road workshop demolition underway

The Ajax Flooring Company workshop off Malpas Road is being demolished. After years of false starts, the redevelopment plans have been approved, which will involve the row of houses on Malpas Road being extended and new units being built behind them, accessible via a driveway. The planning permission documentation describes the work as involving:

The demolition of existing buildings on the site of 230-232 Malpas Road SE4 and the construction of a 2 storey, basement and roof space building fronting Malpas Road and 2 two storey plus roof space terraces, comprising offices (Use Class B1), 2 two bedroom, 4 three bedroom and 1 four bedroom self-contained residential units, together with associated landscaping, provision of bicycle stores and 10 car parking spaces, with access onto Malpas Road.

With thanks to Monkeyboy.

Hope it looks good & adds to the area, unlike that vile building that has been created at the bottom of Cranfield Road which looks like all kinds of wrong, in height in relation to the rest of the property it's next to and the way it seems to set further out onto the pavement that other buildings.

Yes those new buildings at Cranfield Rd are totally wrong. Is this Conservation Area ? Even if it isn't it is no excuse. Same as the ones on Ashby Rd (between Wickham and Breakspeares). Now that IS conservation area so how on earth did they get planning ?

Might be partly because the Broc. Soc.'s human resources are limited and it is subject to so much sniping from Anonymii on these Forums that people are put off getting involved and helping out.

Not all the LBL planning officers are pro-active on protecting Conservation Area principles and it often takes vocal objectors for even inappropirate applications to be refused.

There is very little consistency in what's approved and not approved in the conservation area. For example, one minute the guildelines are that no building along the mews will be approved and the next, they are approving new outbuilding construction. And as we know there is little if any enforcement of regulations. As Tamsin says, I think that unless the Broc Soc or local people kick up a fuss about proposals, anything gets through, conservation area or no...

actually don't think this is in the Conservation area? or at least Malpas Rd isn't, not sure if the units behind will be.

Regardless of whether it's in a conservation area or not we don't any part of Brockley blighted by cruddy buildings.

It seems only a Conservation Area by name.

The architects will probably blame the contractors for the pavement leaching.
I really wish I had rang the council whilst that building was being constructed, it's too late now it would have to be demolised and I don't want that as people probably want to move in. But I just find this situation v. disappointing
