Woodlands and Mycenae House

Following on from a public consultation exercise, formal bids and a Council Cabinet decision earlier in July, it can now be announced that the winning bid to bring Woodlnads back in to use and to provide for the future of Mycenae House has come from the London School of Musical Theatre. Originally at the Old Vic and now primarily in custom premises in Southwark, this organisation will provide be an interesting addition to the area.

A slight downside is that to provide funding for this the Council are considering the erection of 12 x 2-bed flats in the S.W. corner of the site. The Society considers this to be over-development in terms of the public consultation outcome which accepted the idea of a 'small mews style development'.

Whatever materialises, it will still be the subject of a normal planning application.. so make your views known at that time.
