The designs, from MDR Associates, will also reclad the existing two apartment blocks on Chilton Grove. It’s not clear if the project is ultimately for the council or a housing association, as the developer is a construction company based in Surbiton.

The existing blocks are a mixture of brick and panels, some of which has been weather damaged. The plans to add additional units on top of existing housing stock marks a change from the comprehensive estate redevelopment that has been common in Southwark.
