Patmos Lodge redevelopment update

Consultation events were held in May and June to display our proposals to build more and better homes on the disused Patmos Lodge care home site. We received over 50 responses online and at the events. We also spoke to 39 residents as well with 85% of the comments received being either positive or neutral. Below is a  summary of feedback received:

Positive comments:

  • Plans make good use of an empty/derelict site
  • Good to see affordable housing and family-sized accommodation being proposed
  • Nice to see the retention of trees and the introduction of new landscaping
  • Good to see the taller elements towards the centre of the site, which will reduce the visual impact of the homes


  • There is pressure on parking in the immediate and wider area, especially with parking for schools also needed
  • Taller blocks may impact daylight and privacy of existing neighbours
  • High density of homes
  • Concern about noise, especially from balconies
  • More notice needed for future consultation events

Other comments:

  • Would like to see more greenery and wildlife boxes
  • Important that future homes are constructed to a good quality
  • Would like to see the council exploring more creative ways to consult with residents including a site walkabout
  • Would like to see carbon neutral development and photo-voltaic (PV) panels
  • Would like to see new shops and cafes

We are currently considering these responses and working with Lambeth’s planning team to further develop our designs.  We will be consulting with shopkeepers along Foxley Square over the next month and we are aiming to present an updated masterplan to local residents in December 2017.
