Revitalising the Cambridge Road Estate neighbourhood:
Building the Future Together

In early 2020, residents of the Cambridge Road Estate overwhelmingly voted in favour of regenerating their neighbourhood. With a strong turnout of 86%, 73% of eligible residents backed the Council's plans to deliver new high-quality and sustainable homes that are environmentally friendly.

The Planning Committee granted planning approval for the regeneration in late 2021, and phase 1 of the programme began in late 2022. Phase 1 is progressing well and we look forward to supporting the first set of residents to move into their new homes later this year.

We are now using what we have learned so far to prepare detailed designs for Phase 2. You can find out more about Phase 2 here.

The ambitious project will create 2,170 new homes, including 941 affordable ones, of which, originally, 767 were to be council-rented. In January 2024, Kingston Council announced, however, that the regeneration will now provide 871 new council homes once all 5 phases are complete.

Additionally, the project will provide residents with a community centre, green streets, and outdoor spaces to enjoy for generations.

We're thrilled to see the Cambridge Road Estate community coming together to help build a brighter future, and we invite you to learn more about this exciting development. Check out our website for more information on this innovative and sustainable project.
