South west London to undergo housing transformation

Ambitious plans were recently revealed for a long-awaited transformation of the housing landscape around Clapham Junction. The bold move will create much needed availability, choice and local facilities for those buying property in south west London. The proposed development will transform an area best known for its vast train station, with improved commuter access via a new Northern Line tube station, 18,000 new homes for delivery over the next 10 years, and green pedestrian and cycle routes. The plan is great news for anyone wishing to buy or sell their property in Clapham and the surrounding south west London neighbourhoods - as investment into the area's infrastructure and housing stock will not only add desirability and value but showcase the area to a new audience of investors and buyers, comment Winkworth. Getting on the ladder The availability of low-cost homes is an issue across the UK but never more so than in London, where limited stock and soaring prices can deter first-time buyers and expanding families from buying in the capital. The initiative planned for Clapham Junction will include at least 5,000 low-cost homes in an attractive architectural design, with small starter homes in modern blocks enjoying shared social facilities. In the biggest housing push since the 1980s, Wandsworth Council is also championing mixed tenure living. Spearheading the initiative is the former Christie's Fine Art storage warehouse, which the council has given Bellway Homes permission to knock down and replace with 510 flats, of which 76 will be affordable homes and 114 set aside for private rent to locals on extended tenancies. Mixed tenure housing will also be created at The Winstanley and Old York Road council estates ' with an ambitious blend of private flats, shared ownership schemes and homes for social rent. Facelift for facilities The revitalisation plans are not only great news for people looking to buy a south west London property but also for those looking to sell their home. The significance of a new tube station aside, the Clapham Junction regeneration proposals also include a new pedestrian plaza and shopping hub on Grant Road, a new library, a leisure centre and a park. Ultimately, the council plans to link together the neighbourhoods between Clapham Junction, the River Thames and Wandsworth town centre. Going up not out Traditionally skyscrapers have been built around The City and Canary Wharf but in an attempt to create the most homes from the smallest footprint, current and future housing plans for south west London include a significant number of new skyscrapers. Already in the planning or under construction is The Ram Brewery in Wandsworth, One Nine Elms by Battersea power station and Vauxhall Cross Island - which has been dubbed a mini Manhattan.
