The site itself has a rich history of industrial use, which we are adding by including over 2,700sqm of light industrial workspace alongside 139 homes.

In May 2019, Connected Living London unveiled Montford Place as one of our first-generation sites
Given the vibrant community and the history surrounding the site at Montford Place, we opened a dialogue with local residents at the earliest opportunity. We took the time to share our initial thinking, but most importantly we listened to what they had to say about the area.
The Foundry, 19 & 23 November 2019
We shared our plans with the local community for the first time in November 2019 at our public exhibition. We welcomed over 65 people over the two days, and collected invaluable insight into our scheme that helped inform its evolution over the months ahead.
We know not everyone can attend Public Exhibitions, so we decided to make participation easier by giving the people the chance to respond to our polls. Over 15,138 people visited our website while our polls were open, and we received close to 6,000 responses which helped us develop our proposals.
Following our engagement with local residents, community groups, local councillors and online polls, we collated and reviewed the feedback received. Between November 2019 and January 2020, we considered how we could respond to the comments; as a result, we amended the architecture to respond to the industrial characteristics.
The Foundry on 13 February & Wyvil Primary School on 15 February 2020
We held our second-drop in session in February 2020, where people were given the opportunity to talk to the project team about our updated proposals. We heard a lot of stories about how Kennington has evolved in the last few decades, and the local community shared with us how significant the area’s heritage is to them.
Lambeth Council validated our planning application in April 2020 and invited consultation responses to our submission via its online portal.
We will provide our future residents, local employees and the existing community with active and vibrant landscape spaces. Our design references the site’s industrial past and uses a sustainable and diverse approach to planting, in order to deliver fresh contemporary spaces for users of all ages and mobilities.
At CLL, sustainable means more than the environment. It’s also about delivering for the local economy, and about designing a scheme with and for the existing community and about improving their quality of life. At Montford Place, our commitment to the economic, environmental, and social means we can maximise the positive impacts transforming the site will have, such as enhanced greening and delivering much-needed maker-space in Lambeth.
