The proposals for Berkley Homes redeveloping the Kennington gasworks (at the back of Tesco on Kennington Lane) are now open to public consultation.
It is a huge development and your Prince's Councillors have been pushing for the following to be included:
- New homes for local people - through a local lettings policy we want as much social and affordable housing as possible to be allocated to people already living locally who have a housing need
- Employment opportunities - we want to bring new businesses to Kennington
- Youth Employment Hub - we are campaigning for Kennington to get a Youth Employability Hub which can support young people with on-the-job training and job opportunities
- Space for a new library - as part of our campaign to secure library provision for North Lambeth in the face of 50% cuts to our budgets, we are pushing for a brand new state-of-the-art library as part of this development
