Eastlands Crescent – is it Vandalism?

On Eastlands Crescent residents are fighting a planning application to demolish one of the original 1930s detached homes and replace with x2 new houses. (Southwark application no. 19/AP/0946).
Eastlands is a complete street of 1930s houses built on the site of the old Eastlands House. The house in question is one of a group four identical detached 1930s homes on the street and shares the plot with a large protected Oak tree.
Unfortunately Southwark Council has already indicated to the developer that 2x new houses would be acceptable in principle (and therefore demolition of the existing home) and Dulwich Estate have no power to stop demolition,  but the good news is there is still time left before the council make a final decision.
There are many negative aspects to the development such as its massive scale, asymmetric and incongruent design, inappropriately high density and the significant loss of amenity, but most worrying is the fundamental threat to the preservation of Dulwich Village conservation area if an original period single dwelling of nearly 100 years old is allowed to be demolished, setting a precedent for other speculative developers looking to make a profit in Dulwich.
If residents feel they would like to support Eastlands Crescent residents feelings on this matter and make a comment, then follow the link below to the Southwark Council website. The statutory expiry date for comments was coming Monday 19th May, however comments will be accepted thereafter until a decision is made.
