In February 1999, the Clapham Park area was selected by a borough-wide strategic partnership to be Lambeth’s New Deal for Communities (NDC) neighbourhood. A successful bid led to the award of £56 million over a 10-year period, starting in April 2000. Clapham Park Project, a community led project team, was formed to take charge of the NDC programme and transform the lives and prospects of this deprived community.
Since 2001, Clapham Park Project has worked with residents and partners to develop a Masterplan to regenerate the Clapham Park area.
In March 2005, residents voted yes to a stock transfer from Lambeth Council to Clapham Park Homes, which was specifically set up to take over the ownership and management of homes on Clapham Park.
Our regeneration programme has been funded in part by the Housing Corporation’s Social Housing grant; the NDC grant through Clapham Park Project; and through private loans, a large proportion of which will be paid back through the outright sale of homes and the balance from rental income.
A range of housing solutions within the Clapham Park estates have, and will be offered, including:
- Permanent rented homes, including homes that cater for those with special needs.
- Homes for sale, including low cost home ownership initiatives.
We will also offer a limited range of temporary accommodation for those residents whose homes are being demolished as part of the Masterplan.
