Councillors Unite Behind Roehampton Regeneration Plan
As eight week consultation period for residents starts
The regeneration of the Alton area in Roehampton has moved another step closer after Wandsworth councillors unanimously backed new planning guidance at last week’s full meeting of the council.
The Roehampton Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), which was voted through by all political parties, provides strong guidance for residents, stakeholders and developers on the level and type of development the council wants to see in this part of the borough.
“In the years ahead we aim to replace the most outdated housing on the Alton estate with high quality homes set around a much improved environment, a stronger local economy and with modern community facilities. Crucially, we are offering all existing council tenants and homeowners living here the chance to stay and share in the area’s revival.
“Over the course of this project we also expect to build hundreds of additional properties, including more homes for social rent and shared ownership.”
