NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Wandsworth is applying to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for consent under article 12 of the Greater London Parks and Open Spaces Order 1967 to carry out restricted works on Tooting Bec Common. The Planning Inspectorate will decide the application on behalf of the Secretary of State
The proposed works are to improve the former Youth Club and Triangle One O'Clock centre buildings by the construction of rear and side extension to the former Youth Club, currently occupied by the Balham Amateur Boxing Club, the installation of new roofing across the former Youth Club and extensions, and the corridor linking this with the former One O'clock centre building, and the installation of new external doors and disabled access ramps together with the installation of new, artificial grass surfaced all weather sports pitches with associated fencing and floodlights on the adjacent area currently laid out as a redgra surfaced sports pitch.
The improved buildings will provide facilities for the Balham Amateur Boxing Club, with changing and toilet facilities for users of the indoor and outdoor sports facilities together with a refreshment facility, and fully accessible toilets all of which will be accessible to users of the facilities and users of the wider Common. They will also provide facilities for the continued provision of stay and play providing year round opportunities for children from the age of 18 months for both indoor and outdoor play and offering parents the choice to join organised activities or play with their children themselves. In total the facilities occupy an area of 5000 sqm. situated in the north west corner of the Triangle field
The external walls of the metal clad building and the associated extension will be finished in dark green (similar to the current finish) and brick built extension will be painted to match the existing structure. The proposed extension to the buildings increases the built footprint from current 399 sq.m. to 456 sqm., an increase of 57 sqm. ( 14.3% approx.)
There is no increase in the area occupied by the outdoor sports pitches.
A temporary compound for the storage of construction materials will be located on the hard surfaced area to the west of, and opposite the development site.
