Plans have been approved for a housing-led regeneraton project in Ham by the Hill Group and Richmond Housing Partnership.
Plans for Ham Close will see several 1960’s blocks of flats replaced by 452 new homes, together with new community facilities and public spaces. It is expected that final approval will be given in the new year once it has been assessed by the Greater London Authority.
49% of the homes are expected to be affordable for rent, London Living Rent and shared ownership, 10% will also be wheelchair accessible. Plans for the new neighbourhood will include a community centre, a new building for community workshop Richmond MakerLabs together with a park with play spaces.
The project follows several years of work between Richmond Council and RHP, the largest provider of affordable housing in the borough, to secure regeneration of the estate.
