Cambridge Gardens - potential development

Consultation has concluded

One of the major challenges facing Kingston-upon-Thames is providing affordable housing and finding appropriate sites to meet the needs for purpose-built housing of all types, with supported infrastructure.

Each London borough is given a housing target, as set out in the London Plan. To meet this target the council must identify where new housing can be delivered, whilst at the same time seek the right balance between protecting the environment and supporting the local economy.

The council is the freehold owner of the housing estate known as Cambridge Gardens, which includes significant areas of landscaped open space.

In accordance with objectives set out in the council’s Housing Strategy Delivery Plan (2015- 2020), ongoing assessment of the council’s land holdings has identified land at Cambridge Gardens as having potential for the development of additional affordable homes.

Development of additional housing at Cambridge Gardens could also provide early decant opportunities for the Cambridge Road Estate decant programme.

On 27 June 2017, Growth Committee approved proposals for a development partner to undertake the masterplanning and recommended delivery strategy for the potential development of Cambridge Gardens.

Part of those proposals stated that residents would be engaged through all stages of the development programme, which is why this engagement page has been set.

The page contains frequently asked questions and opportunities to ask questions. We will also update the page with the latest news and opportunities for residents to get involved and have their say. So keep checking back for new updates and follow the project to stay informed.
