118 Canonbie Road redevelopment proposal

We are planning to redevelop 118 Canonbie Road in Forest Hill into new council housing.

We have submitted a planning application for 118 Canonbie Road.

The site

  • Currently there is a three-storey building at 118 Canonbie Road.
  • The existing building has been neglected and is not fit for human habitation. Therefore, the Council has designed for demolition and re-build.

The proposal

The new development will:

  • be a three-storey building
  • have six family-sized homes for homeless families made up of two and three bed self-contained flats
  • include a large shared garden and improved green space
  • have a similar structure to the building its replacing
  • provide much needed temporary accommodation, supporting residents to remain in their local community
  • increase the supply of genuinely affordable homes, helping to meet the long term housing needs of local residents
  • remove a not fit for purpose property, replacing it with a new and modern building

 Design

  • The development will use a simple palette of materials and textures to fit in with its local setting.
  • The roofs are stepped to follow the slope of the hill and the curved building line of Canonbie Road.
