Plans to build 1100 homes over a ten year span on the site of Roehampton's Alton Estate have been submitted.

In 2016 Redrow plc was chosen by Wandsworth Council as a development partner to replace the post-war council housing on the 31-acre site.

As well as new homes, the proposal includes an 'Urban Quarter' which will feature a new village square and multi-purpose community building to host the new Roehampton Library, a health centre, spaces to rehouse the Base Youth Club and a new community hall.

There will also be office and shopping spaces built, plus a new community hub within the Parkland Quarter which will host the new Eastwood Nursery School Centre for Children & Families.

Leader of the council Ravi Govindia, said: “Alton regeneration will deliver more than new homes, it will re-energise Roehampton and provide state of the art community facilities that will benefit the Roehampton community and wider Wandsworth.

“I am delighted to be working with Redrow in partnership to deliver this long-awaited transformation. This partnership is another demonstration of our commitment to building more homes across the borough and providing better housing choice for Wandsworth people.

“Regeneration of the Alton Estate will also offer opportunities for people to train, learn new skills and improve their general wellbeing. We want to ensure that people of all backgrounds can fulfil their ambitions in Wandsworth and that is why this regeneration programme and partnership is so important.”

Mark Parker, managing director at Redrow east London said that in the next few weeks residents living in and around Alton Estate will be given the opportunity to comment on the proposals.

"Our shared vision is to create a sustainable new community that combines new homes with important community infrastructure and opportunities for small businesses through the provision of affordable workspace," he said.

“The area has a strong cultural identity and a number of important heritage buildings that we have taken into consideration during the design process.

"The new homes will be delivered in accordance with The Design Code that has taken inspiration from the modernist buildings of Alton West and the Victorian streetscape of Roehampton Village.

"The homes will be surrounded by areas of attractive open space and new pedestrian and cycle routes will be created, linking Alton Green to the surrounding communities. We look forward to continued engagement with the local community over the coming months and years.”

Of the 1,103 new homes, Redrow said that 256 of them will be new and replacement affordable homes.
