Alton Estate regeneration next to Richmond Park in Roehampton, London SW15.

The transformational mixed-use regeneration will deliver more than 1,100 new homes including 261 council homes.

The development will be phased to ensure residents are able to move straight into their new homes on the estate.

The proposals will also deliver new community facilities including a new library, youth centre, community hall, GPs surgery, nursery and children’s centre together with new shops and business spaces.

Wandsworth Council is replacing post-war council housing in parts of the 17-acre Alton estate, creating a new library and retail area twice the size of existing provision; a new health centre and children’s centre; a new park and around 1,100 private and affordable new homes.

Some existing owner-occupiers will be provided with a new home on the estate. Furthermore, 30 heritage-listed sheltered housing bungalows, which have featured in the film Fahrenheit 451, will be renovated to ensure they meet modern space standards.

Health and children’s centre:
A new health and family-focussed community centre will be built at Portswood Place, opposite the reconfigured and redesigned Downshire Field. The new highly quality community facilities will include a children’s centre, nursery, medical primary care centre, pharmacy, and a local youth charity.

Community pavilion:
A new community pavilion will sit within the Capability Brown landscape, forming part of the 5500m² of D1 community floor space currently proposed. It will create a focal point for existing and new community groups and events, and will include a flexible general purpose meeting hall, a group meeting rooms, and catering facilities. A large external terrace, opposite new adventure areas and upgraded play provision within Downshire Field, will enable activities; exercise sessions, community events and classes to expand from the interior out into the green setting.

A new community library and learning centre will increase services currently provided, including individually-designed children’s and adults’ libraries, alongside a state of the art IT hub and community café. A large and accessible community hall will provide a central location for community groups, learning services and events, and a gallery space will offer facilities for local arts groups.

Office and retail:
The new development will include up to 5000m² of A1 – A4 retail space, doubling the size of current provision. Proposals will also aim to deliver new and dedicated B1 workspace along with new offices for local housing management, youth clubs and related services.

Transport and connectivity:
Proposals will create a pedestrian and cycle-friendly environment, promoting access to Richmond Park and nearby Barnes railway station. Improvements to local bus routes, increasing transportation links, will also be explored.
