British Land has submitted a planning application to construct a buttress wall (brick box) in the vegetated area behind the wooden fences at the very eastern end of Hothfield Place. This needs to be built to support and protect a new gas main pipeline that Southern Gas Network will be diverting through Surrey Quays Shopping Centre car park, as it changes levels from the car park down onto Hothfield Place – more information can be found here. Image 1 below marks up the construction site and provides more information on steps we are taking to reduce local impact. Image 2 is an illustrative image showing what the buttress wall will look like once works are complete.
Southwark Council is undertaking statutory consultation on this planning application between 15 April and 5 May 2019. All of the planning application documents are available on Southwark Council’s planning register here. The case reference number is 19/AP/0896.
Subject to planning permission, we hope to carry out these works over a period of approximately 6 weeks, between June and September 2019. We will provide details of the dates when the works will take place if planning permission is received.
