Wandsworth to Start Estate Regeneration
Posted on: 25/01/2016

Wandsworth council has announced it is looking for a joint venture partner to help it regenerate the Winstanley and York Road housing estates in central Battersea. The announcement comes days after David Cameron’s plans for the regeneration of sink estates across the country.

The council wants to create 2,000 homes, new retail, leisure, community and office space from the estates, forming a mixed-use neighbourhood. Council tenants and owner occupiers are being offered new homes in the development, as hundreds of ‘outdated’ council homes will be rebuilt, as well as new affordable housing, private rented and private for-sale accommodation.

The estates will also gain a new park, library, leisure centre facilities and an improved connectivity from Clapham Junction, which is due for reconfiguration as part of Network Rail’s investment plans. It will also be part of the proposed Crossrail 2 route.

Leader of Wandsworth council, Ravi Govindia, said,

“Our ambitions are to deliver more than 2000 high quality new homes in the heart of Battersea and to completely renew the estates’ environment, services, and community facilities,”

The development partner procurement process is being managed by Bilfinger GVA on behalf of the council.
