Welcome to our website for updating you on our progress regarding the Sampson and Ludgate House site.

There is a existing consent to develop homes, commercial and public space on the site. Since purchasing the site in 2016, Native Land has been looking at the existing consent and considering how best to bring forward the very best architecture, public realm and community benefits.

A planning application was submitted in Summer 2017 that improves on the existing consent, delivering more homes, flexible commercial and cultural space and increased open public realm.

Key works

Letters from Select Traffic Management have been sent out letting residents know about road closures on Hopton Street to allow the erection of tower cranes. For more information, please visit the Construction and Community page.

Planning Application

We have now submitted our application and detailed reports to Southwark Council. This has been validated and can be found online by searching for the reference number 18/AP/1603 on Southwark Council’s Planning Portal: https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/online-applications/

You can read exhibition materials from our public consultation on our Planning Update & Public Exhibition page.

Community Update

We are holding Community Liaison Group meetings to discuss key issues of interest to local residents throughout the process of demolishing Sampson House. The next meeting is due to be held on 3rd April 2019 at 6.30pm at the Better Bankside Community Space, 18 Great Guildford Street, SE1 0FG.
