  • Overview

    Taylor Wimpey South Thames is seeking to develop the site at Gresham Road for Seventy One homes, comprising a mixture of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments all with dual aspect.
    In addition to this, we are proposing to create ground floor commercial space for small to medium enterprises. This will provide active frontages onto Valentia Place and the Gresham Road.

  • About the Site

    The site is located between Valentia Place to the west and Gresham Road to the east and measures approximately 0.74 acres in size.

    The north of the site is bound by a railway viaduct on which South Eastern Trains run a service from Brixton to Victoria. The arches beneath the viaduct are not currently accessible; however, the proposals will provide the opportunity for Network Rail to bring them forward for commercial use in the future, which will further enhance the area.

    To the south of the site – fronting onto Coldharbour Lane – is a terrace of buildings with commercial at ground floor level and residential on the upper parts.

    The proposed development will sit adjacent to the railway.

    There is expected to be a significant amount of regeneration in Brixton over the coming years, with the implementation of the Future Brixton Masterplan and regeneration of Somerleyton Road.

    We hope that this scheme will make a significant contribution towards housing targets in the city, and provide a beautiful new development for all residents to enjoy.

  • Our proposals

    Whilst the final design of the scheme is still evolving, the initial proposals seek to redevelop the site for 71 homes, with a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments with commercial floor space on the ground floor.

    Our proposals are to create three distinct buildings ranging from 5 to 8 storeys in height.
    These have been orientated to allow sunlight to penetrate between them on to the two areas of public open space. The units are also all dual aspect.

    A car-free development:

    The development has been designed as a car-free scheme given its sustainable location within walking distance of Brixton Station, the excellent bus links in the area and the retail and leisure facilities in the town centre. There will, however, be some provision of disabled parking on the development. There will also be secure cycle storage for all future residents and employees, accessible from the ground floor.

    Vehicular access will be via Valentia Place, providing a single through-route used also as a shared surface for pedestrians.


    A Transport Statement has been prepared to assess the transport implications of the development. Due to the ‘car-free’ nature of the scheme, one of the initial findings is that there is likely to be no increase in traffic movements associated with the development.

    There is currently a coach company on site. Which, once relocated, we expect to see a decrease in traffic movement on the surrounding road network with the only usage linked to the proposed development coming from delivery vehicles, disabled users and pick up/drop offs.

    A detailed Construction Management Plan has been generated to detail the activity of vehicles during construction and to minimise the disruption to local residents. The plan will be in agreement with the Considerate Construction Scheme. Construction sites that register with the Scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
