The design by Space Craft Architects for a mixed-use scheme on a brownfield site near Elephant & Castle, south London, has received planning permission.

The scheme, for Oakmayne Properties, will include 240 private and affordable homes together with work space. Properties will be grouped around a courtyard that forms the start of a pedestrian route leading to Walworth Road. A commercial street will be incorporated alongside the railway. The scheme is due to begin on site this summer and is scheduled for completion in early 2007.
