Grand plans are currently in the works for Wandsworth. The deprived estates where the Clapham Junction riots began shall undergo demolition. The idea is to make space for a £1.4billion regeneration scheme. Said scheme involves constructing a leisure centre and 2,500 homes. Everything could gain approval by this summer if all goes well.

The masterplan has come as the result of a joint venture between Taylor Wimpey Central London and Wandsworth Council. Individually, locals refer to the two estates as York Road estate and Winstanley estate. Locally, they’re known as The Winstanley. They are a mixture of slab blocks and high-rise towers. Their original construction took place between 1956 and 1972. As a result they are past their best.

Social rent and affordable housing

Overall, 750 households existing on the estate shall relocate to one of the new structures. Additionally, they’ll be mixed in with new private houses for the most part. About 110 flats will be available for social rent. Moreover, people expect affordable housing to make up 35% of the new homes. Residents had the choice between refurbishment and demolition. In the end, 70% expressed their desire to have the estates knocked down. Right now, the set completion date is 2030.
