I have been contacted by many constituents who are concerned about the planning application for a 20 storey tower on Pope’s Road in Brixton submitted by Hondo Enterprises.
This application will be decided by the Mayor of London and I have written to the Mayor on behalf of my constituents to set out my objection to this application.
The proposed tower is more than twice the height of other local buildings. There is no planning policy justification for such a tall building in central Brixton, which would dominate the skyline and overshadow existing homes and businesses.
The design of the building is bland. It does not celebrate or enhance the identity of Brixton, and it is not designed to the highest possible environmental standards.
I urge the Mayor to refuse this application. It isn’t good enough for Brixton.
