Cocks Crescent Development Site, New Malden

The Cocks Crescent site in New Malden includes a leisure centre, Blagdon Road open space and surface car parking. There are also a number of vacant or underused sites which could be put to better use. Together, these sites, including the vacant and demolished buildings, offer an opportunity to improve current services and the surrounding area, as well as provide new homes and better community facilities. Between 2015 and 2017, the council worked with the local community to create a shared vision for the redevelopment of the Cocks Crescent site. This resulted in the production of a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

Over the last few years we have worked with the community to help develop a vision for the site and we are keen for this to continue. There are still many aspects of the proposed development which need to be defined and you will have a real opportunity to influence and play a part during the next stage.

We want to ensure the new development provides better links to New Malden High Street as well as improved pedestrian access for new residents to help encourage footfall to the local shops, cafes and restaurants and increase the vibrancy of the high street as well as the surrounding area.

Throughout July 2019, independent consultants, Fluid Design, facilitated a number of co-design events including two co-design workshops with the local community. These workshops aimed to investigate the following aspects of the site in greater detail:

  • Character and identity
  • Layout and land-uses
  • Community benefits and facilities

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed their time to the co-design process so far.

We will be holding a community drop-in event on Saturday 7 September, where we will be sharing the outcomes of the co-design process and seeking your thoughts and feedback on detailed development principles for the site. The final outcome of this process will help to shape the Design and Development Brief for the future development partner for the site.

The event is a casual drop-in event, so feel free to come along any time between 12.30 and 4.30pm to view the information and provide feedback, no RSVP required.

We will be sharing the following information:

  • Details of the co-design process
  • Summary of feedback received
  • Development principles for the site
  • Indicative layout, land-uses and building form.
