Our proposals

For a long time now, Wandsworth has held ambitions to improve the Alton area and create new opportunities for local people through regeneration. These ambitions are now being realised, following the near-completion of a five-year period of extensive masterplanning and consultation.

The Alton Area Masterplan, which was finalised in 2014, confirmed the vision for Roehampton and set out clear objectives for the regeneration of key intervention areas (KIAs) – areas of the Alton that are in need of greatest improvement and where investment will benefit the largest number of people. Since then, we’ve refined the original masterplan, making improvements to it, and we’ve set out plans for the regeneration process in much greater detail – ensuring that the key objectives of the project will be met and the new homes and facilities can be delivered.

The regeneration project will see the delivery of a new village square, at the junction of Roehampton Lane and Danebury Avenue, with a new library, youth centre, GP surgery and café; a new retail area; a new children’s centre and nursery; new and improved landscaping and play spaces and around 1,100 new homes including affordable.
