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 well in excess of 3,200 homes on the estate, made up of a combination of refurbished and new build homes for rent, shared ownership and outright sale.
We are also developing a range of community facilities, including:
- primary school
- community centre
- two hectare park
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.
