With every building project there will always be set-backs along the way, particularly with developments on sensitive sites and with designs that seek to set a new architectural precedent for the area. This has been the case with our Lambeth Mission Church development near to London’s landmark Imperial War Museum. After two years of design development and negotiation with the church client, the Greater London Authority, the local community and Lambeth Council we have yet to obtain planning permission for our new ecclesiastical and hotel development, with the design being refused at planning committee. At Kyson we endeavour to meet the needs of our clients and are fully committed to working with the key stakeholders in appealing the decision. We view this set-back as a key point along the lifetime of this project and look forward to seeing how the project develops in the coming months.
