Our Ambition for the Cambridge Road Estate
Cambridge Road Estate is the borough’s largest regeneration programme. It aims to deliver approximately 2000 new homes over the next 10-12 years, including more affordable housing, better community facilities and outdoor spaces and deliver a positive social and economic legacy for residents in Kingston for years to come. The Council is looking for excellent expert professionals who can be part of a once in a generation opportunity to positively transform people's lives by improving their quality of life by delivering new homes, community facilities, job opportunities and overall health.

Kingston is committed to following the Mayors guidance for estate regeneration and will put proposals to a resident ballot in the Autumn of 2019. This is a flagship project for the council that will upgrade our housing stock, providing hundreds of affordable homes whilst delivering value back to our Housing Revenue Account as a joint venture partner to betterment of the Norbiton neighbourhood and borough as a whole.
