St John’s Wood Barracks

Posted: 18/04/09

Local Labour Councillors are concerned at the Eyre Estate’s proposals for St John’s Wood Barracks. We would like to see the existing Jubilee Buildings retained and refurbished. Karen has highlighted the following 5 key issues about the current proposals for St John’s Wood Barracks:

§         The current design is neither sympathetic to the local environment nor sufficiently imaginative to constitute an interesting alternative.

§         The internal layout will not be conducive to the flow of people in and through the development.

§         The local community should benefit more from the proposed leisure facilities.

§         There will be increased pressure on local parking facilities.

§         The inclusion of affordable housing on-site is very welcome. Concerns about the density of the development should be dealt with through careful design and close attention to parking issues.
