Lambeth councillors have given the go ahead for the ambitious scheme which will see the redevelopment of Olive Morris House, Hambrook House and Ivor House alongside construction of a new civic office building and the refurbishment of the Grade II listed Town Hall.
Permission was granted at Tuesday’s meeting of the Planning Applications Committee after considering the application put in by Muse, the developers appointed by Lambeth council.
The council is cutting the number of buildings it uses from 14 to two which will save around £4.5m a year. The Muse development will result in 194 new homes including 40% affordable housing and a new, energy efficient, civic building with improved customer centre and council offices.
Hundreds of jobs will be created and preparatory work is expected to begin on the scheme within the next few weeks, with the main works starting early next year.
The Town Hall will be closed from September 4th and most services moved to Olive Morris House. Council telephone numbers remain the same and there will be information on the council website about where council and other meetings will be held.
