Roehampton University seeking planning permission for cabins near Parkstead House

Background:

Roehampton University is seeking the “Proposal Retention of seven portacabins sited against the southern boundary for a period of three years (affecting the setting of a Grade I listed building)”. Having not been able to find the planning permission for these cabins being there in the first place the Planning Department was approached.  In short, the University does not have planning permission for these cabins and is seeking retrospective planning permission.

According to the letter from the University agent, Boyer, these cabins are used for teaching psychology.

Where are these cabins?

Photos of the cabins are below.

Photo 1: Kimpton House (SW15 4ND) is to the left of the photo and the cabins can be clearly seen to the left. To the right of where the photo is taken (and not in the picture) is Somborne House (SW15 4NA) on the Alton Estate.

Is there really spare car parking capacity?

Please do have a read of the planning application as it appears to make assumptions that Alton Estate residents may consider incorrect, such as the assertion regarding car parking. A complaint that has been raised by residents near and around the Holyborne Road University entrance is that those connected to the University park cars on the Alton Estate rather than on its premises. The below picture of Holyborne Road is from yesterday at 12:30pm and the car park around Parkstead House was full, so…how many of these cars belong to non-Alton Estate residents?

    Why have all the Universities in Roehampton chose to build halls of residence’s for their students but have failed to provide enough lecture facilities? Suddenly cabins lecture facilities is what is required from Wandsworth borough planning depart. Alton and Roeregenerate are doing their best to get MP and the councillors to work for the wellbeing of the community of Alton Estate not being marginalised by the Universities.
