The former SG Smith workshop site which was to be called ‘The Gilkes’ when it was owned by McCulloch Homes, is now to be called ‘Soane Place’. The new owners, Aquinna Homes, have renamed the site and have also applied to Southwark to remove the previously agreed affordable housing, offering a cash payment in lieu. A similar application by the previous owner was withdrawn after the Council indicated it would refuse. Southwark should say the same with this application (Ref: 21/AP/2458). The new owners also want design amendments which would impact on its appearance and the Society will also be objecting to those.
