Welcome riffsister.

Wow, that is a big striking new building. It is hard to see how that

... sits gently amongst its neighbours.

There is no parking space provided for 8 family apartments because apparently there is no shortage of parking space locally!

Am also intrigued by the following statement:

The proposal involves the demolition of a dwelling and the development of a new building to the front (roughly to the same dimensions as the existing house), together with the construction of five dwellings to the rear. It should be noted that the supporting text defines rear gardens as “the entire back garden to the rear of a dwelling or dwellings as originally designed”. For this reason, the
development is considered to be back garden development. Note: The development proposal no longer includes development in the rear garden and therefore does not qualify as ‘backland’ development.

Does anyone know what this actually means?

No affordable or social housing I presume?

Not sure but the government has just exempted small housing schemes from affordable housing requirements so wouldn't be surprised.

Am I just an architectural philistine, or is that staggeringly ugly?

I am not directly affected though I do agree it is an ugly looking building, though that has never bothered Lewisham before!

I was surprised that the parking aspect seemed to concentrate on the availabily of overnight parking spaces. Given the proximity to Honor Oak Park station I would have thought that daytime parking availability would have been more relevant.

Agreed. It's staggeringly ugly. Depressing as the building there at the moment is a beautiful old Victorian house. Shame it couldn't be converted into flats.
