I'm not certain what I feel about the planning application. If I lived close by I would be cautious of the proposal but I'm not sure whether my objections would carry any weight in the planning department's considerations (studied T&C Planning for 3 years at uni but most of those brain cells have died since).

It is a large development but it could also be argued that the site is large and underused at present. Also it could be said that the structure at 1 1/2 Manor Mount is unusually small compared with all but the one on the plot 3 to the right on Manor Mount - rather than the structure at number 1 being too large. It's difficult to tell from the fairly basic line drawings but the frontage of the side extension looks reasonably sympathetic to the existing building too.

I live close to the flats recently built on two existing plots in Taymount Rise and I was concerned both before and throughout the development. I've got to say though that the finished building is actually quite interesting and in a city where we have a shortage of residential accommodation, replacing two small houses on two largish (and quite untidy) plots was probably a better compromise than using green/greenish space (as in the much discussed area further up Honor Oak Road). That said, no one has moved into the flats on Taymount Rise yet so quite what impact that will have only time will tell.

All I'd say is if you do sign the petition, please do so having studied the planning application first.
