The Homes for Lambeth Small Projects Programme

We have provided transport consultancy services to Homes for Lambeth on their Small Projects programme to deliver just under 400 residential units across the London Borough of Lambeth through a combination of affordable and market sale housing. The commission included the reprovision of community uses on some sites.

Our role was to assist each project team in scheme layout design and provide input into access and parking for residents and visitors. In addition, we helped to develop a strategy for delivery and servicing access across the respective sites. All the developments are car free with the exception of disabled persons car parking to meet London Plan requirements.

We then prepared a suite of transport reports to support respective planning applications for each site. Reporting included Transport Assessments / Statements, Travel Plans and Delivery & Servicing Management Plans, in addition to post application technical reports as a result of engagement with Transport Lambeth, as Highway Authority.

The Small Projects programme comprised a portfolio of 10 sites, as follows:

  • Land at Hydethorpe Road – 14 residential units
  • Patmos Lodge, Cancell Road – 20 residential units
  • Land at Angel Town Boiler House – 18 residential units
  • Coral Day Nursey, Wootton Street – 36 residential units plus community use building
  • Carmelita Centre, Vauxhall Walk – 29 residential units above a new community use building. This included a separate planning application for a temporary community facility adjacent to the site
  • Land at Orsett Street – 38 residential units
  • Roman Rise, Central Hill Estate – 31 residential units
  • Fenwick Place, Fenwick Estate – 27 residential units
  • Trinity Rise – 20 residential units plus community use building
  • Land at Denby Court and 109 Lambeth Walk – 141 residential units

The Challenge of Delivering Multiple Sites

To engage with different project teams on scheme development to deliver the required quantum of housing at each site. This involved the preparation of necessary transport documentation in a timely manner for respective planning applications across a 24-month programme period.

The Outcome of the Small Project Programme

Following varying levels of consultation with Transport Lambeth to obtain their support at planning committee, the last and largest of the small sites at Denby Court to come forward was approved by Lambeth Council planning committee members in March 2022.
