Cumberland House proposal

Cumberland House is part of the Kingston Small Sites Affordable Housing Programme being delivered by The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames to provide affordable council-owned housing in small sites across Kingston.

The site is located behind the existing buildings on the Cumberland House Estate, towards the top of Kingston Hill. Cumberland House is located approximately 10-15 minutes’ walk away from Norbiton railway station.

The proposals comprise of the redevelopment of the existing poorly maintained car parking area to the south of the Cumberland House Estate and will consist of a 9 storey building comprising 41 homes with a mix of one, two and three bedrooms.

The new building will be carefully integrated into the existing landscape and parkland with new tree planting provided around the proposed building.

The proposals include the upgrading of the existing play area to deliver enhanced facilities for both existing residents and those living in the new homes. A new ramped access path will provide step free access to the new play area for disabled users and those with children in pushchairs.

A semi basement car park, together with surface level parking spaces will provide a total of 19 car parking spaces with about 79 cycle parking spaces – in line with the London Plan – for residents.

The design and layout of the building retains a number of high quality trees near the south of the estate, and the new building will be substantially set back from the existing Cumberland House buildings allowing views into the enhanced amenity area.

The careful design and setting of the proposed building will ensure neighbouring properties and gardens are not unduly compromised, and that existing Cumberland House residents will maintain views over the newly-enhanced amenity areas.
