Say No to Woodgate Tower!

Homebase Development Update
Unfortunately, planning permission was granted for the proposed development on the Homebase site, that has now become known as Woodgate Tower. Our Eileen Barnes was at the Brixton Town Hall meeting on 19th March with several other SVPOA members to object the development of the high rise tower block adjacent Streatham Common station. With four votes in favour of the site and two votes against the Lambeth Planning Applications Committee have decided to approve the application, judging that the benefit of new affordable homes allocated in the tower outweighs any negative impacts on existing residents. 

It has been advised that local residents opposing the development should write to the mayor to ask that the application is called in.
The Mayor of London is Sadiq Khan who, along with the London Assembly, is accountable for the strategic government of London. You can email the Mayor at

Our local Cllr Danny Adilpour has been in support of our appeal to against the high rise development and has issued a statement on behalf of Streatham Vale residents opposing the application. “The decision is now with the Greater London Authority (GLA) for final stage 2 Approval and I encourage you all to provide your comments to the GLA on the proposals at the following link as soon as possible:
I’ve also written to our local Greater London Assembly Member – Marina Ahmed regarding this and we will be continuing to support residents in making their voices heard.”
