New Manwood Road housing planned

The planned terrace
More planned infill of brown field sites in the area. An application has been submitted to replace a Crofton Park garage with new housing, which in principle is a good swap. 
The site currently occupied by garages
The application proposes:

The demolition of the existing garages at Garage site 82A Manwood Road to the rear of 66-96 Manwood Road SE4 to provide 1 part two/part three storey block and 1 two storey block comprising 2 two bedroom and 5 three bedroom houses with communal garden area, together with the provision of 8 car parking spaces and the installation of automatic security entrance gates to the front of the site.

With thanks to a BCer who asked not to be named but thinks they are too pokey.

pros and cons to this. Some tidying up of the small parcel of land is good cerahowever the density of housing looks to be high for the site, parking provision looks meagre and traffic congestion on Manwood will result. How are fire trucks and dustbin lorries going to navigate the narrow entrance.

I'm not too sure about a three storey modern development so close to gardens of victorian housing stock.

Housing needs go above the gardens of the local Victorian houses.
