Affordable homes in Peckham get planning consent

Last week we received a unanimous planning consent for the Sumner House and Flaxyard scheme in Peckham, LB Southwark. This scheme is part of the council’s commitment to building 11,000 new council homes.

Sumner House will sensitively convert a 1930s school building to provide new apartments and townhouses and feature a new copper clad roof extension. An adjacent site, Flaxyard, will provide more than one hundred homes between two new buildings, located either side of a pedestrian street. Of the total 168 homes – 120 will be affordable, split into 96 homes at council rents and 24 at intermediate rent. The proposal also features provision of flexible retail space on the ground floor of the property on Melon Road, car parking and landscaping work, including a ‘play ruin garden’.

A huge thanks to all who worked so hard on the project, including the team at East whom we collaborated with.
