A planning application for the former car pound on Dunton Road / Mandela Way has been registered with Southwark Council.
Click the link here to see full details of the application: http://planbuild.southwark.gov.uk:8190/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=_STHWR_DCAPR_9575377
The proposal includes 231 residential units and 1,377sqm of B1 light industrial uses. This does, however, represent a net loss of total industrial space and a violation of current protective planning policy that designates Mandela Way as a SIL (Strategic Industrial Location).
The application insists the site is unused, however, we recently visited the site and found it being used as yard / industrial accommodation for its neighbour Conways.
