Clapham Park masterplan

There have been a lot of changes since the original masterplan was agreed: the financial environment and changes to government planning policy and building regulations for example. Added to that is the chronic housing shortage – Lambeth has over 22,000 households on its housing waiting list. It’s therefore clear that we need to revisit the masterplan so we can be sure it delivers what the local community needs today and into the future.

We’ve been asking you to give us your views on proposed changes at a series of open sessions. This month (16 and 22 May) we’re looking in more detail at new homes and the interim community resource centre. If you aren’t able to make it to the drop-in events (please see details over on the right), you can view proposals here. You can also view proposals for the area to the south of the South Circular Road.

In March we unveiled the evolving masterplan. You can find out more on these information boards.

These two short films give you a taste of:

  • how we see the regeneration programme being phased across Clapham Park
  • how we got to where we are today, how the masterplan has evolved and a sense of how the area may look when the regeneration is complete.

 

Whilst we may be looking to make some changes to the masterplan, there are some really key commitments that will not be affected. For example, we will still:

  • deliver a new or refurbished home to every secure tenant
  • provide a minimum of 4.18 hectares of high quality open public space, including a park
  • make sure that 50% of homes delivered are affordable
  • ensure there are safe streets, pedestrian and cycle routes
  • provide a range of new shops and much improved community facilities

Residents were invited to attend an initial event in October 2016 to find out more about the masterplan review. Have a look at the information boards.

Further smaller sessions were held in January when we asked for your views on:

  • Design ideas for open spaces and parks
  • Community facilities and shops
  • Streets, movement and parking
  • Designs for communal and private amenity spaces
