GEOFFREY CLOSE (LAMBETH) ESTATE

Over 100 council and housing association estates across London are under threat of demolition. Our research shows where they are.

Geoffrey Close (Lambeth) estate

Stage: Preparation

135 homes are earmarked for demolition on Lambeth’s Geoffrey Close estate near Coldharbour Lane.

Housing association Riverside Homes, which manages the estate, wants to replace it with 400 new homes, 135 of which at London Affordable Rent.

In December 2018, 67% of residents who voted in the ballot voted in favour of redevelopment. The scheme is being funded by the Mayor in a joint venture between Riverside and Bellway Homes.

Consultation is underway ahead of the proposed submission of a planning application in late 2020.
