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.

On 13 February 2020, the council’s Finance and Partnerships Committee agreed to seek a preferred development partner to deliver the new leisure and community hub on the Cocks Crescent site.

This stage of the project follows extensive co-design and engagement work which was undertaken with local residents and stakeholders last summer asking them to share their views on the design and plans for the site. This feedback has been fed into the draft development brief that will now be taken to the market to help identify a suitable partner. The process to identify a preferred development partner will take between six to nine months.
