Wandsworth council has announced further plans in the regeneration of Garratt Lane:
"An agreement has been reached with the NHS for the council to replace
the ageing Brocklebank medical centre with a fully updated, bigger,
GP-led community healthcare facility.
Under the terms of the agreement the town hall will arrange for the
new medical centre and a pharmacy to be built as part of a wider scheme
providing new shops and housing on land at the corner of Swaffield Road
and Garratt Lane, which is currently occupied by the existing 1960’s
Brocklebank building, some existing shops and a car park.
This next phase will add another 160 homes on council-owned
‘brownfield’ sites fronting Atheldene Road, Wilna Road and Waverton
This land is currently occupied by a number of unattractive 1950s
and 60s council-owned buildings and their replacement with smart, high
quality homes will not only help revitalise the area, but also improve
the visual amenity of these streets by restoring parts of the historic
The council expects to appoint a preferred developer this summer and for
a planning application to be submitted in early 2017 with work starting
on site later in the year."
I've only been in to the Brocklebank surgery a handful of times but it seems overdue for a refresh. Go Earlsfield will keep a close eye on planning applications as they come to light.
