Wandsworth Council submits planning application for Tooting Lido pump room to Planning Inspectorate

We previously commented on the council trying to avoid a requirement for a green roof on this building in this post.

You can now find all the details of the Council’s application to the Planning Inspectorate for consent to carry out improvements at Tooting Bec Lido, specifically the construction of a new electrical sub-station and the demolition and rebuilding of the south room of the pump house together with associated trenching and cable laying works, here:


The roof will sadly be a steel profile sheet roof with sunpipes – the green roof is gone. Update: the council have confirmed there was a mistake in the documents and there will in fact be a green roof! Hooray!

This application was approved by the Wandsworth Council Planning Applications Committee and is now being considered by the Planning Inspectorate, as it concerns works on common land.
