Our housing commitments to residents

Council tenants 

All council homes proposed to be demolished are being reprovided, with a newly-built home for all council tenants and additional social housing to be built.

If you are a council tenant of a property to be demolished, you will remain a secure tenant and retain your Right to Buy and be offered a newly-built home on the estate with no change in tenancy conditions.

Owner-occupiers

Shared equity is offered for owner-occupiers, to maintain existing communities, as well as refurbished sheltered accommodation, with the works paid for by building properties for sale.

If you are an owner-occupier you will be offered a newly-built home through shared equity.

Events

Fontley Way Consultation

Date: Thursday 14 March 2019 (from 5 to 8pm) and Saturday 16 March (from 10am to 1pm)
Location:  Manresa Clubroom (Fontley Way, SW15 4LY)

A key aim of the Alton estate regeneration is to ensure secure council tenants and resident homeowners are able to move directly into a newly built replacement home.

As part of this commitment and to ensure the needs of existing residents are met we are proposing to build 14 new family homes at Fontley Way (on the site of the former One O'clock Club). Designed to a high quality architectural standard, the proposed development will provide outdoor space for all homes, additional play space in the local area, and will meet or exceed the space requirements set out in the London Plan.

If you have any questions or require assistance getting to the venue please contact the Regeneration Team on 020 8871 6207.

More information

The redevelopment will be phased so that residents will not need to move until their new home is built.
