Coulgate Street block approved

The Council has approved plans for a new apartment block, with a street-level office space, to be built at 16 Coulgate Street.

The site is the former home of Speedicars, which was demolished and recently served as an access route for the Brockley Station platform extension project. The application is for:

The construction of a part single/part four/part five storey building at 16 Coulgate Street SE4, incorporating balconies and roof terrace, comprising a mini cab office/retail/commercial unit (Use Classes A1/A2), 4 one bedroom, 3 two bedroom and 2 three bedroom, self-contained flats, together with the provision of a bicycle store.

The supporting documents include a letter of intent from Speedicars, indicating that they plan to return to that site, occupying the office once it is built. The designs are a little blah, but it makes sense to fill this site in.
