Project

Doon Street

Coin Street Community Builders

The Doon Street development comprises a comprehensive mixed use masterplan which extends across three phases and will deliver new housing in a 43 storey tower, a headquarters for the Rambert Dance Company (now complete), retail, education and, of most significance, a new multipurpose sports centre including a swimming pool to serve the Waterloo area. The project required extensive consultation and gained the support of Lambeth and the Mayor of London. Following call-in by the Secretary of State, Lichfields prepared and gave evidence at a public inquiry. Pending construction of the last two phases of development, we have also secured permission for a sustainable “meanwhile use” in the form of the Green Room restaurant, which is built from recycled and recyclable materials.

Lichfields has been great in getting us through all the planning complexities to ensure that we could secure this vitally important permission for the Waterloo area.
