More homes will be built next to Clapham Junction railway station as part of the redevelopment of a 1930s housing estate, despite calls for the plans to be “withdrawn”.

Wandsworth council approved the final phase of the new neighbourhood on Tuesday of last week.

The Peabody Estate, in St John’s Hill, has been knocked down in phases after housing association Peabody was given the go-ahead in 2012 to build five new blocks with 527 homes on the estate.

The original estate is being demolished because it “does not now fit needs of residents”, according to Peabody.

Residents were given the option of staying on the new development, known as Burridge Gardens, which includes a public square and community centre.

In 2019, the number of homes increased to 599 after approval from Wandsworth council.

The final changes mean 59 more homes will be built on the site, bringing the total to 658, by adding more floors to some of the blocks.

A statement with the latest application says: “These changes are a consequence of the original scheme being consented over 10 years ago, and the need to ensure the final phase delivers real improvements to support this thriving community with amenities that are needed and wanted by the neighbourhood.”

Under the plans, 243 homes will be available at social rent and 80 at intermediate tenure.
