Skyscraper developer to farm out ‘affordable housing’ to Vauxhall City Farm?

St JamesProperty developer St James and Vauxhall City Farm want planning permission for a deal under which St James provides fewer ‘affordable’ homes on its 15-, 23- and 26- storey skyscrapers on the Albert Embankment in return for building eight ‘affordable’ homes on the site of derelict houses backing onto the farm. These new homes would come with education and office space for the farm to replacie the existing portakabins. Since the houses belong to Lambeth, planning permission may not be too much of a problem. You can see the proposals at the farm entrance until 10 July.
