A hybrid application (part full/part outline) for the redevelopment of the former government offices at Hook Rise South has been received for residential development including:

  • 705 dwellings 
  • a 262sqm convenience store
  • a Doctor's Surgery
  • a Children's Day Nursery
  • 350 car parking spaces
  • an energy centre

The applicant, Spenhill Ltd, undertook a pre-application public consultation in autumn 2014 and then submitted their application to the Council in March 2015. You can see the full planning application within our online planning database using reference number 15/10074.

It shows: 
  • the status of the application
  • a detailed description of the proposed development
  • any supporting plans and documents

You can also view a copy of the planning application at Tolworth Library and at our Information and Advice Centre at the Guildhall.

Revised plans were submitted in July after which re-consultation took place.

The site was sold by Spenhill, Tesco to Meyer Bergman who intends to proceed with the current application. 

The type of application has been amended so that all parts of the application are now in outline with only the matter of means of access for approval at this stage. 

Following the  Development Control Committee on the 2nd March 2016, where there was a resolution to refuse the application, additional information and revised layout plans were received along with further traffic modelling by Transport for London, the results of which will be published shortly.

The application will now be reported back to Committee to allow this additional information to be considered before the application is referred to the Mayor of London.

The new dates for Committee are 20 June 2016 for a Pre-Decision Making Committee following by 6 July 2016 for a decision making Development Control Committee.
