Description of Aylesbury Estate

Aylesbury Estate is a development area in Soutwark, London SE1.

The Aylesbury regeneration will provide 4,000 new homes and community and commercial buildings.


The first plot to be developed is no 18. This is mostly a vacant site at the new civic heart of the Aylesbury Regeneration area. It comprises two separate blocks situated around a new public square.

The development will create 122 new homes above a community facility, which includes a public library, stay and play facility and commercial space and a Health Centre with an Early Years Nursery designed by Duggan Morris Architects.

The housing mix varies from 1 bedroom flats to 3 bedroom flats and provides a range of tenures including private sale, market rent, shared ownership and target rent. Over 50% of the homes will be affordable with the majority of those being let at social rents. In addition the scheme will provide 23 apartments designed specifically for people over 55 years of age.

Notting Hill Housing will be providing more than 120 extra affordable homes on the first phase of the Aylesbury regeneration after Southwark Council agreed the plans on Tuesday 9th May 2017.

A new report approved by the council’s Cabinet members revealed there would be a slight variation to the tenure split on the areas known as Plot 18 – where the council is building a new library, public open space, health centre and early year’s centre – and the First Development Site (FDS).

In order to deliver the public facilities as soon as possible, some of the affordable housing allocation has been moved from Plot 18, although there will still be 23 affordable homes for over 55s. Instead, the amount of affordable housing on the FDS will increase so that there will actually be more affordable housing overall across the two sites.

Cllr Mark Williams, cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, commented: “We are completely committed to delivering our promises to the residents of the Aylesbury, this includes 50% affordable homes and a genuinely mixed community on the Aylesbury estate. To bring forward the delivery of the new homes we are moving some of the affordable housing to the first phase of delivery, overall there will be both more social housing and more shared ownership homes to help people get onto the property ladder.

Mick Booth, Assistant Director of Regeneration at Notting Hill Housing said: “Being able to reduce the numbers of homes for private sale in order to provide 121 more affordable homes than planned, including an increase in numbers for social rent, in the early phases of the regeneration is a great boost to Notting Hill Housing’s commitment to Southwark Council, and to the Aylesbury residents who will benefit. We are looking forward to starting construction at the beginning of 2018 and welcoming families into new, high-quality affordable homes from 2020.”

Southwark’s Planning Committee has granted permission for the next phase of the Aylesbury Estate regeneration.

The 2.5 acre site along Thurlow Street, known as Plot 18, will have a state-of-the-art library as well as brand new medical and early years’ facilities for the community. There will also be 122 new homes, half of which will be for social rent or shared ownership.

This decision will allow a new public square, designed to be a focal point for the community, and the important community infrastructure that surrounds it, to be delivered early in the regeneration of the Aylesbury Estate so that residents can start benefiting from the redevelopment as soon as possible.

Cllr Mark Williams, cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, commented: “The regeneration of the Aylesbury estate remains a key priority for the council and we are forging ahead to create better quality homes, an open and attractive environment and, especially on Plot 18, brand new facilities for the local community to take advantage of like a new library and healthcare centre.

leanor Purser, Project Director for Notting Hill Housing, commented: “Planning consent for Plot 18 marks another key milestone in progressing the Aylesbury regeneration. These proposals build on the key landscape and design principles from the Masterplan designs that were approved last year, creating a high quality useful and attractive public open space for everyone surrounded by community facilities that will help this neighbourhood thrive both now and in the future.”

The design team for Plot 18 is led by HTA Design LLP and includes Duggan Morris Architects.

Notting Hill Housing has submitted planning application to Southwark Council for the 2.5 acre Aylesbury development, reports HTA Design.

Eleanor Purser, Director of Regeneration for Notting Hill Housing, said: “Plot 18 will be the heart of the new neighbourhood. Somewhere you bump into neighbours while you are waiting to pick up your toddler from the nursery, or collecting a prescription. It’s got to feel like a place you want to spend time in.

“Local residents really pushed our design team to create a scheme that worked for everyone. Thanks to local involvement we think we’ve created a better proposal for current and future residents.”

Cllr Mark Williams, cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, said: “Southwark is committed to delivering quality, affordable new homes for local people, but the regeneration at Aylesbury is about much more than that. We also want to make a positive difference to the lives of the people who live on the estate, with better open spaces and community facilities such as this brand new library and health centre, and I am very pleased to see proposals coming forward for this site at the heart of the estate that will really start to deliver these and become a central hub for the local community.”

The design team for Plot 18 is led by HTA Design LLP and includes Duggan Morris Architects.

Pre-demolition works started on the Aylesbury Estate as the next phase of the massive 3,900-home regeneration project gets underway, reports Notting Hill Housing.

Work started the week beginning 10 August and is initially being carried out inside the smaller Chartridge blocks in the First Development Site (between Bradenham Close and Portland Street), which are already empty. Keltbray Ltd has been contracted to carry out the initial stages.

Residents who are still living within the site are being kept fully informed of the work taking place and Notting Hill Housing (NHH) has made sure that safe and unrestricted access will be maintained to and from their homes. Emergency services can still reach all areas of the site and waste collection is unaffected.

Security will still be in place to ensure the safety of residents and visitors while works are carried out. There is also a traffic management plan in place to ensure nearby businesses along Westmoreland Road are not affected by the works and that site traffic doesn’t affect people living in the neighbouring Elizabeth Estate.

Cllr Mark Williams, cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, said: “Our residents need better quality affordable homes with more open green space and better community facilities. This is the next step in this vitally important project.

“Our residents need better quality affordable homes with more open green space and better community facilities, this is the next step in this vitally important project. The regeneration of the Aylesbury Estate has been discussed for over 15 years and progress is now finally underway on the next phase, our first with partners NHH, with the first steps in the demolition process now happening on site.”

The works begin just a week after planning permission for the Aylesbury Estate regeneration was finalised with the signing of a Section 106 agreement pledging a new health centre, library and almost 2,000 new affordable homes, with 75 percent of the affordable homes let at target (social) rents.

Kate Davies, Chief Executive of NHH, said: “This is another important step forward in the regeneration of the Aylesbury and we are proud to be providing new facilities such as a library and health centre for the benefit of residents within the development area and beyond.

“The agreement also confirms our pledge to provide 50 per cent affordable homes in the regeneration. This will allow us to help existing residents stay within the footprint of the Aylesbury and also provide affordable homes to families who need them.”

The project is due to be completed in 2032.
