Clapham Park estate is a 61.4 hectare site in the London Borough of Lambeth and is a mix of interwar and post war council housing. After several years of under investment, a New Deal for Communities (NDC) programme was set up to arrest its decline.
The regeneration will include 975 refurbished and 2,480 new homes; new commercial, community, medical, nursery and educational facilities; road improvements; and parks.
A full range of tenures will be provided in the new properties, including 960 affordable flats, 1,470 flats for sale and an extra care scheme for the elderly, consisting of 50 flats.
An ambitious masterplan was developed by the local community and NDC, and outline planning consent for the overall development was obtained in June 2008. Individual buildings and areas are subject to ‘reserved matters’ planning applications.
The refurbishment works commenced in 2007 with a scheme of 66 flats. The first new building, a block of 85 flats for existing tenants, started on site in May 2008.
After the estate was transferred to a new community housing association, Clapham Park Homes, MHP was selected as its preferred partner. A successful ballot to transfer the estate was achieved in March 2005.
Clapham Park Homes and MHP are working closely with local residents, Lambeth Council, the NHS, Greater London Authority, Transport for London, the Homes and Communities Agency and other funders, to ensure the scheme is viable and meets the various objectives of its partners and stakeholders.
