Award-winning developer London Square has secured the go-ahead this week on planning for 253 new homes in the final phase of Springfield Park, part of the transformation of the Springfield University Hospital site in the London Borough of Wandsworth.
The latest phase includes 43 per cent affordable homes, 108 in total, to be delivered by London Square following its selection last year by South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust as the development partner, completing the last stage of the Springfield Village masterplan.
Wandsworth Council’s planning committee approved plans for 95 one bedroom, 75 two bedroom, 52 three bedroom and 31 four bedroom homes, a mix of apartments and family homes. 108 will be affordable homes, a mix of 37 social rent and 14 shared ownership. The remaining 56 homes will be supported living. A total of 26 homes will be wheelchair accessible, 14 within the private for sale and 12 within the affordable homes.
London Square Earlsfield, as it will now be known, has been designed by Assael Architecture for London Square, with high quality new homes, using brick and other materials designed to complement the Grade II listed Springfield Hospital building and the new public park, with a series of park-facing detached and semi-detached houses and apartments. New public squares, courtyard gardens and new streets will provide a green and attractive setting.
“The Springfield Village masterplan is transforming the Springfield University Hospital site. We are delighted to receive approval to build new homes of exceptional quality, responding to a range of housing needs, from affordable, supported living to private for sale homes to first time buyers and families. We look forward to continuing to work with the London Borough of Wandsworth and South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust on the delivery of this final stage in the evolution of Springfield Village.”
Adam Lawrence, Chief Executive, London Square
"Our design takes inspiration from the listed and local buildings on and around the site, to create sympathetic architecture that is rich in detail, and with a layout that includes new streets, public squares and courtyard gardens that prioritise pedestrian movement and deliver the vision of the strategic campus masterplan.”
