Wimbledon Stadium, Plough Lane: one site, two plans for development

1. AFC Wimbledon / Galliard Homes

Earlsfield residents may be aware that Merton Council received a planning application last month from AFC Wimbledon and Galliard Homes to develop the Wimbledon Stadium off Plough Lane.

Even though the site is in Merton, residents in Wandsworth are able to submit a response to the planning application. The deadline for submissions is Monday 19th January.

Details of the application itself and how to submit a response are available on the Merton Council website: www.merton.gov.uk/environment/designandconservation/design/wimbledon_greyhound_stadium.htm

I have already received responses and comments on the application from a number of Earlsfield residents. If you would like to get in touch about the application, please contact me at rstokes@wandsworth.gov.uk. I will be incorporating comments into my own response and submitting next week.

2. 46-76 Summerstown (Volante)

Volante Limited are looking to develop their current site on 46-76 Summerstown into residential units. They hosted two public consultation workshops earlier this week to outline their initial plans, which I attended. Details are as follows:

– 98 residential units (1,2 and 3-bedroom properties) over 10 levels;

– Underground parking (approximately 36 spaces), which will also double up as flood storage;

– 4 commercial units

They have yet to submit a planning application and intend to do further public consultation once their plans are more fully developed. In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the application please contact Alex Griffiths at Cratus Communications: agriffiths@cratus.co.uk

Please also feel free to share your thoughts on this development by contacting me at the same email address above.
