The development consists of provision of a 5 storey block with partial set back to the public square. The scheme will provide 26 units (12 intermediate units and 14 social rented units).

Section ll.2.7 — the anticipated duration for each of the 2 sites in this lot are as follows.

A3 — Southwark Park Road
The site is a vacant former social care day centre situated on Southwark Park Road, with large mature trees lining the boundary between the road and site. The surrounding area, which includes Southwark Park and Bermondsey Station, is a mix of 2-3 storey residential properties of period terrace style directly to the south with 5-7 storey block style typologies to the north. The current proposal, which provides 43 residential units (11 social and 28 private units and 4 intermediate) is estimated to have a density of 757 habitable rooms per hectare in the Urban Zone, which slightly exceeds the expected density range of 200 to 700 set out within Core Strategy Policy 5. However, planning advice has been that maximum densities may be exceeded where developments achieve the highest standard of design, exceeding minimum internal space standards as well as providing an acceptable standard of daylight and sunlight, privacy, good outlook and amenity space. The Council would welcome proposals to convert the ground floor to residential usage which was previously originally proposed for commercial usage. Moreover, there may be some scope to provide a slightly larger footprint within the site, particularly if on site bus parking would not be required if a B1 use or residential use is proposed for the ground floor. Sufficient space within the site would still need to be retained for disabled parking and suitable landscaping and planting. Bidders have the option of progressing the current proposal or devising an entirely new one, providing that this delivers the Council's requirements as set out in the procurement documents.
A4 — Cherry Gardens School
The site, at the corner of Macks Road and Southwark Park Road, is currently occupied by Cherry Garden School, which is relocating to a new site. It is bounded on the south and west by Macks Road and Southwark Park Road.

The current proposal provides a predominantly residential development comprising a series of buildings ranging from 3 to 7 storeys in height providing 50 residential units (12 social, 6 Intermediate and 32 private units) and 150 sqm of retail use (Class A1-A3) together with hard and soft landscaping and other associated works incidental to the development. Bidders have the option of progressing the current proposal or devising an entirely new one, providing that this delivers the Council's requirements as set out in the procurement documents.
