People have until this Sunday to have their say on plans for the Stag Brewery Development in Mortlake.

So far, more than 200 people have officially commented on Reselton Properties 'Application A': up to 817 apartments with blocks of up to eight storeys.

There have been 208 objections, seven in support, and 12 neutral observations

Objecting to the plans, Giles Keeble of Madrid Road, said: "While we realise the need for more social housing and perhaps another school, this proposal hasn't thought through the impact of the building work on the local community which makes us wonder if this is solely for profit.

Unless the council and the developers find a way or ways to improve traffic and access first, the development will be a disaster for local residents."

David Abel, of St Leornard's Road, also objected to Application A.

He said: "Whilst new housing should be one of our priorities that should be directed at affordable and social housing, not an estate of a wholly inappropriate scale for the area it is being dropped on.

"Far too much provision for parking means that there will be an enormous effect on streets that are often gridlocked even without the action of the level crossing at Sheen Lane.

"Adding to that shops and a cinema complex will only make that problem worse.

"No thought appears to have been given to the impact on Mortlake station. It is already very crowded at peak times and this will add thousands of new journeys per day."

Mortlake Brewery Community Group, who oppose the plans, managed to raise more than £11,000 on a Just Giving webpage to fund an an independent impact assessment for the Mortlake Brewery development.

However, Irfan Sadeeq, of Sheen Lane, was one of the few to support the plan, commenting: "Good news for all."

Danny Masting, a father from Ashleigh Road said the consultation hadn't seen much of a point of view from families.

He said: "My wife and I have been Mortlake/Barnes residents for 7 years - we feel this [development] represents real progress and a significant improvement in the overall living standards of the community.

"There are of course a number of aspects that concern everyone, these are well documented elsewhere.

"Many of them represent natural resistance to change, others though such as the density or train station capacity are very real issues that merit attention.

"However, the net impact is this development will: make Mortlake a better place to live; introduce better services; revitalise and create a more cohesive community and quite likely create will result in increased property valuations.

"At the consultation sessions it was remarkable to observe that young families were barely represented.

"The vast majority of opposition comments originate from a demographic that isn't representative of the neighbourhood and who in many instances will not be direct beneficiaries of the improvements."

A spokesman for Reselton Properties said: “The redevelopment for the former brewery represents a unique opportunity to develop public spaces and services around Mortlake for the wider community.

“We are confident that the development will add to the attraction of what makes Mortlake special.”

A decision is due to made by the council on July 19.

In a story in our print edition on May 10, we said the consultation closed on May 9; this was based on information published by the council at the time.
