Council plans for new housing to accompany new primary school

Wandsworth Council has announced further plans for the Atheldene Centre site. They had already announced that the site on Garratt Lane is to host a new primary school in 2015. The council has now released proposals for other council-owned properties in Wilna Road, Atheldene Road and Waverton Road.

The press release says:

"Phase two of the scheme would see the construction of around 26 new houses and 43 flats on land currently occupied by the vacant and unattractive council-owned buildings in Wilna Road, Waverton Road and Atheldene Road.

This would improve the area's visual amenity by restoring the original street pattern and layout by extending the terraces in Atheldene Road and Winfrith Road and reinstating the link from Wilna Road to Garratt Lane.

Phase three of the scheme could provide a modern health centre, replacement shops and up to 75 flats on land at the corner of Swaffield Road and Garratt Lane, which is currently occupied by the existing 1960's-built health centre, shops and a car park."

If you look at a satellite image of the area in question you can see how much land is potentially involved in phase two and where Wilna Road would be extended through to Garratt Lane.

The area in question undoubtedly looks rundown and as any house buyer knows, affordable flats in SW18 are rare. But can local transport handle more commuters?
