Lambeth Council has submitted a scoping report for the redevelopment of the Westbury Estate near Wandsworth Road station between Clapham and Battersea.
The estate currently comprises two tower blocks, which will not be directly affected by the scheme, and 82 units in low-rise blocks which will be demolished.
The first phase of the development will be 64 units from an offsite affordable contribution from Berkeley’s development of 22-29 Albert Embankment.
The next phase, from Lambeth Council, will be for 256 homes with some matters reserved for future applications. Between the two applications, this will be an overall uplift of 228 homes on the estate. It isn’t stated what tenure these will be but given the first phase will be entirely affordable it is likely that there will be an uplift for all tenures. The new buildings will be up to 12 storeys in height.
