CJTCP – meeting 15 January 2015: feedback

Author: Cyril Richert

As usual when I attend the Clapham Junction Town Centre Partnership (business associations) meeting, I give a quick feedback on some specific points that were discussed.

Business report: The Council has currently appointed a team to overview the options towards self-sustainability. The current Town Centre partnership Board structure will remain at least for the next 2 years, until January 2017.

Lavender Hill: Cllr Guy Senior suggested funding the repaving of Lavender Hill from BAC to Lambeth (as TfL has already agreed to extend the Exemplar scheme from the Post Office to the BAC for £0.5 million) with the 15% share of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) that has to be spent on local projects.

Be prepared for a cluster of “Falcon Towers” at Clapham Junction

On the evidence of latest exhibition at York Library on the Winstanley/York regeneration plans, it is obvious that not only have our previous concerns and comments been completely ignored by Wandsworth Council, but also those of the regeneration area’s residents, who specifically wanted “fewer towers”.

PCS to be redeveloped into 65 residential flats?

Author: Cyril Richert


It’s with surprise that we discovered last week that a planning application (2014/5052) was submitted to convert the entire PCS office building (Public and Commercial Services Union) at Clapham Junction station into 65 residential flats (comprising of a mix of 18 x 1 bedroom, 39 x 2 bedroom and 8 x 3 bedroom flats ).

Have the Northcote ward Councillor communicated about this planning application in their Newsletter? Nope! Have the Town Centre partnership (business meetings) been notified? Nope! And more important: have the employees of PCS been informed? Nope! (more…)
