70 St Johns Hill

Application 2013/5712 (70-74 St John’s Hill) was granted in April 2015 for erection of four-storey plus basement building to provide Class A1 shops at ground floor with 8 flats above including a first floor roof garden.

It should replace an openspace/pocket park and match in shape the three other existing buildings at the crossing of St john’s Hill and Plough Road.

Original application dated 2009 (granted in approval 2010/0537 dated 15
November 2010), but the work has been delayed for two main reasons:

  • The negotiation with Wandsworth Valuation Surveyors to purchase the part of the pavement Planners wish to see incorporated in the development to realign Plough Road to its original line and
    St John’s Hill as far as later road widening permits.
  • Having agree this in principle and progressed to a stopping up order, there was the discovery that a Virgin Media cabinet is situated in the part of land to be sold to the development. Negotiations are in progress which have not yet been resolved and until resolved the development cannot progress.

Hopefully we should see some progress made towards the second part of 2015.

We aim to feature as much as possible on community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents and helping residents.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

Until recently, all stories, analysis and reports published have been made with the great help of many volunteers. However, at the end of the day it cost time and efforts and we are frustrated that we cannot do more: there are many subjects that we would like to cover but we need financial resources to help us providing regular information.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
