Clapham Park

The Clapham Park estate covers a 36 hectare area in the London Borough of Lambeth, situated between Brixton, Streatham, Balham and Clapham. It comprises a mix of interwar and post war council housing.

Metropolitan’s involvement in Clapham Park began back in 2005 when council residents voted in favour of a stock transfer and Clapham Park Homes (now Metropolitan Clapham Park) was formed to take over ownership and management of homes on the estate.

When we took over in 2006: 

  • 1,967 homes were transferred from Lambeth Council
  • 1,442 were tenanted and 525 were owned by leaseholders

By the time the masterplan is completed in 2025 there will be 3,226 homes, made up of:

  • 1,819 refurbished or new build homes for rent and shared-ownership
  • 1,407 homes for open market sale, including other shared equity products and right-to-buy homes 

The split of refurbished v new build is: 2073 new build, 1153 refurbished homes. All refurbishment work will be completed by December 2015.

We are also developing a range of community facilities, including: 

  • primary school
  • community centre
  • health centre
  • two hectare park 

The scheme

An ambitious masterplan was developed by the local community and the local NDC (New Deal for Communities), and outline planning consent for the overall development was obtained in June 2008.  Individual buildings and areas are subject to ‘reserved matters’ planning applications.

Metropolitan Clapham Park works closely with local residents, Lambeth Council and other stakeholders to ensure the scheme is viable and meets the various objectives of the groups involved in the regeneration.
