Engagement during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic
We recognise that this is a difficult time due to COVID-19. Because of the social distancing precautions we are all taking, the way we communicate and engage with you might change a little: using the internet, including social media and this website, and conversations by telephone will play an increasingly important role during this time.

Four reasons residents voted ‘Yes’...
A warmer, modern home
A safer neighbourhood
A home that's the right size for you and your family
An energy-efficient home that's cheaper to run
“Overall, the new design for the Cambridge Road Estate will be a vast improvement from a community safety and security perspective. It will bring a reduction in the opportunity for crime, and the fear of crime — creating a safer, more secure and sustainable Cambridge Road Estate. As the leader of the Metropolitan Police South West London Command Unit, I am committed to the prevention of crime and anti-social behaviour. I welcome this new design and support the proposed regeneration.

“I’ve lived on the estate for 33 years. We sit outside and chat with neighbours in the summer. That’s nice. You see some kids playing out in the summer on the green but they haven’t got anything to go to. It isn’t as friendly for children and families as it could be. The idea of the whole area being new is great. All of the flats are getting old and need an awful lot of work done to them. We’re having to spend quite a bit on heating the place and it’s not that warm. A warmer home that’s easier to heat would be really nice. It’s going to be so exciting if this all happens.
“We are supportive of this plan to regenerate homes as the proposed development has the potential to significantly improve the physical and emotional health, well-being and resilience of local residents. In particular, for those currently living in poor quality accommodation, and for those living with long term health conditions. As the Chief Executive of Kingston Hospital, I am committed to improving the health of the population we serve. I welcome the proposed development of the Cambridge Road Estate.

“It needs to happen, particularly for future generations. When I drive past sometimes and I look at the estate, it just looks run down. I’m definitely excited by the regeneration and can imagine what it will look like. I’ve visited Acton Gardens. It looks really nice and modern. It blew me away. I was so impressed and we’re excited about what this neighbourhood could be like. I think as many residents as possible should see for themselves and what they could potentially be moving into here if people vote ‘yes’.
