Winstanley and York Road Estate Regeneration, London, England, UK

Planning permission has been submitted for this scheme’s 500-home ffirst phase.

The Winstanley and York Road Joint Venture partnership have a far-reaching vision for the area which builds on the aspirational master planning process carried out by the council. The masterplan provides more social and affordable housing and a new park which will be used by the whole community.

There will also be major improvements to the built environment, new commercial and community facilities, jobs, education and training opportunities.

Residents can look forward to living in modern, energy efficient homes in an area which is safe and welcoming.

The regeneration will deliver an attractive new neighbourhood that provides better opportunities for all, where people are proud to work, live and visit.

The 2,550-home estate redevelopment includes a 32-storey tower building.

HTA are working with Henley Halebrown and LA Architects (leisure centre and a library).

The client wants to improve the connections between the neighbourhood and wider communities, Clapham Junction station and the river Thames. This will improve conditions for pedestrians and cyclists ensuring a legible place with clear linkages between destinations and improve the estate’s connection with the rest of the borough and the wider city.
