|Application Submitted for Major Putney High Street Development|
Eight storey building planned for junction with Lacy Road
A planning application to redevelop a major site on Putney High Street has been submitted to Wandsworth Council. British Land are requesting approval for a scheme to knock down the existing buildings at 56-70 Putney High Street and replace them with an 8 storey structure. The site is currently occupied by a range of businesses including TK Maxx, Superdrug and Halfords. It is located on the section of the high street bordered by Lacy Road, Felsham Road and Walker’s Place.

The proposal includes 110 new flats including an unspecified proportion of affordable housing and a new public area on Lacy Road. Commercial lettings will be maintained on the frontage to Putney High Street. A ‘new streetscape’ along Walker’s Place is also promised.
A public consultation on the proposals was held at St. Mary’s Church in October 2014. 164 people attended the exhibition over two days and British Land say they received positive feedback on the scheme with 84% of residents supporting the principle of developing the existing site.
