New Homes Introduction

Welcome to the website for community engagement on the potential for providing new homes for council rent and landscape improvements.

The London Borough of Wandsworth is currently considering ideas to develop small sites across the Borough as part of its Homes for Wandsworth Programme, to deliver much-needed new council rent homes to meet the needs of the Borough’s residents now, and for generations to come.

We have appointed a new design team to look at the development with a fresh pair of eyes. They have been working on various options to build new homes for council rent levels, provide public amenities for new and existing residents for their ongoing health and wellbeing, and deliver a high-quality design, which includes lower-rise options.

Thank you to those who attended our public consultation event on 5 July and provided their feedback on the proposals. Our consultation period has now closed.

Homes for Wandsworth

What is the Homes for Wandsworth Programme?

There is an exceptional need for new homes in the Borough with, at present, over 12,000 applicants on the Council’s housing waiting list, over 3,600 of whom are in temporary accommodation. Wandsworth Council approved a development programme in 2017, with the aim to build 1,000 new homes across the Borough on sites within the Council’s ownership.

Following the 2022 elections, Wandsworth Council has been targeting a series of actions to address the housing crisis Wandsworth faces. One of these is the Homes for Wandsworth programme’s focus on council homes. This will deliver 1,000 council homes – over 500 more than previously planned.

These homes will be delivered for local people and will be normally allocated to existing council tenants from the Estate, or the wider vicinity, who have an existing priority due to their homes either being overcrowded or underoccupied. This will then free up homes for those on the waiting lists.
