The Alders Garages, Aldrington Road

Housing for all


Demolition of existing non-residential buildings within the estate and redevelopment of the site creating 34 new homes. The homes will be a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms with 3 fully accessible wheelchair properties. The wider estate will also benefit from two new play spaces and additional paths, landscaping, parking and lighting.


Planning permission was granted at the July Planning Committee to transform garages at The Alders Estate, Aldrington Road SW16 into 34 new, affordable homes.

The planning application was submitted following ongoing consultation with the local community throughout the design phase of the scheme and their feedback was incorporated into the planning application.

The scheme received praise from members of both the Labour and Conservative parties and was approved unanimously.

The Council will continue to keep local people informed as the development progresses. The next steps will be to source a contractor and create a works plan.
