Clapham Park covers 36 hectares in the London Borough of Lambeth, situated between Brixton, Streatham, Balham and Clapham.
The South London estate won £56million as part of the New Deal for Communities programme to improve the area for its residents. Created in consultation with the local community, including residents and stakeholders, the visionary masterplan was to provide Clapham Park residents with good quality, well managed and maintained homes at affordable rents. In addition, the area was to be revitalised with a network of new parks and open spaces, cleaner and safer streets, better transport, good schools, and a range of community facilities.
Outline planning consent for the overall development was obtained in June 2008. By the time the masterplan is completed in 2025 there will be well in excess of 3,200 homes on the estate, made up of a combination of refurbished and new build homes for rent, shared ownership and outright sale.
