Bermondsey job will also include industrial and office space

Plans to build more than 450 homes across three blocks in south London have been given the green light by planners in Southwark.

The scheme by north London practice David Bonnett Associates at 310-330 St James Street in Bermondsey was rubber-stamped by the council shortly before Christmas.

The scheme will comprise of three blocks, the largest which will be 19 storeys

Work will involve tearing down existing low-rise buildings and replacing them with three blocks of 7, 8 and 19 storeys.

In all, 467 flats will be built with the project also including light industrial and office space.

The scheme, which was recommended for planning, still has to be rubber-stamped by London’s mayor before work can begin in earnest, which is expected to be later this spring.
