Re-visiting the original masterplan

We knew it was time – ten years after the original masterplan was agreed – to re-examine if we were still on track to deliver what the local community needs today and in the future.

From October 2016 regular exhibitions and resident community events were held to help generate ideas and put together proposals for the new Clapham Park masterplan.

In 2017 a full planning application was submitted to Lambeth Council. In March 2018 we were given planning permission. This allowed us to move forward with the final stage of the planning consent process by entering into a Section 106 Agreement with Lambeth. Once this is completed work on site is expected to start towards the start of 2020.

View all the application documents submitted on Lambeth council’s website.

The planning application is for more than 2,500 new homes, a community hub, a new community centre and new shops. Road improvements include a new pedestrian-friendly ‘super crossing’, two new bus stands and bus driver facilities. Car club vehicles will be available for all Clapham Park residents. Landscape improvements include the creation of a central park and new play facilities north and south of the South Circular Road.

The new masterplan

We gave our residents plenty of information about the proposal at our open exhibitions and community events. View the information boards provided at the most recent of these events.

This short film provides a fly through of the new masterplan for Clapham Park as submitted to Lambeth Council for planning. The film zooms into computer generated images for the key character areas to indicate the look and feel of the future Clapham Park.

While the new plan proposes changes to the previous masterplan, there are key commitments that remain the same.

We will still deliver:

  • a new or refurbished home to every secure tenant
  • a minimum of 4.18 hectares of high quality open public space, including a park
  • at least 50% of the homes affordable
  • safe streets, pedestrian and cycle routes
  • a range of new shops and much improved community facilities
