Have your say on planning proposals for the future of the Lambeth Hospital site.

Monday, August 03, 2020


  • Proposals for the future of the Lambeth Hospital site will create more than 500 new homes, 50% of which will be affordable for the local community
  • A car-free development with new community uses fronting Landor Road and well-planned green spaces for residents and neighbours
  • Proceeds from the surplus estate will be invested back into NHS hospital and community facilities
  • Residents invited to have their say at online public discussion events on Tuesday 4 and Monday 10 August, 6-7pm. Register at lambethplanning@londoncommunications.co.uk

South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust are launching a public consultation on proposals to redevelop the Lambeth Hospital site and create much needed new homes for Lambeth, including 258 affordable homes.

This is the next step in the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust’s vision to deliver world class mental health care for patients. It will use the proceeds from its surplus estate at Lambeth Hospital to invest back into its current and future hospital and community facilities while creating much needed new homes, including genuinely affordable homes, for local people in Lambeth.

The proposed development for the 2.5-hectare site on Landor Road will create approximately 570 new homes, with 50% by habitable rooms being genuinely affordable for the local community. The development is designed to integrate into the surrounding area, with new community uses fronting Landor Road and well-planned green spaces for residents and neighbours to enjoy, including an ecological corridor and landscaped public realm. 10% of the homes will accommodate disabled people with the remaining homes meeting ‘lifetime homes’ criteria, so that they can be adapted in the future if needed.

Local residents have an opportunity to find out more about proposals and give their feedback at two online public discussion meetings taking place on Tuesday 4 August and Monday 10 August, from 6-7pm. Please register to attend by emailing lambethplanning@londoncommunications.co.uk or call freephone number on: 0800 307 7650

This consultation follows a 12-week NHS public service change consultation to relocate the adult acute inpatient mental health wards currently on the Lambeth Hospital site to a new building at the Maudsley Hospital, in Denmark Hill. The decision by NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group, will see mental health services for the community transformed from old, out-of-date wards into a facility fit for the 21st century.

It also gives the Trust the opportunity to use the proceeds from its surplus estate at Lambeth Hospital to invest back into its current and future hospital and community facilities while creating much needed homes, including genuinely affordable new homes, for local people in Lambeth.

The plans have already evolved as a result of feedback received during the service change consultation and feedback from members and officers at Lambeth Council and two Independent Design Review Panels. Residents now have an opportunity to give their views on the plans, so that these can be considered as the designs are developed, before a planning application is submitted at the end of the summer.

David Bradley, Chief Executive at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust, said:
“To ensure the safety and quality of our mental health services for the people and communities we serve, there is an urgent need to redevelop our mental health hospital facilities.

“We have an opportunity to use the proceeds from our surplus estate at Lambeth Hospital to invest back into our current and future hospital and community facilities while creating much needed homes, including genuinely affordable new homes, for local people in Lambeth. This is part of the process of modernising our inpatient facilities for patients, service users, their carers, friends and families and our staff in Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham and Croydon.

“Your feedback is important to us. Please give us your views on the plans so that these can be considered as the designs are developed further this summer.”
