Welcome to the official website of the Winstanley and York Road estate regeneration. Here you can find the most up-to-date information about the planned changes to the neighbourhood.
The Winstanley and York Road Joint Venture partnership have a far-reaching vision for the area which builds on the aspirational master planning process carried out by the council. Our masterplan provides more social and affordable housing and a new park which will be used by the whole community. There will also be major improvements to the built environment, new commercial and community facilities, jobs, education and training opportunities.
Residents can look forward to living in modern, energy efficient homes in an area which is safe and welcoming.
The regeneration will deliver an attractive new neighbourhood that provides better opportunities for all, where people are proud to work, live and visit.
We want to improve the connections between the neighbourhood and wider communities, Clapham Junction station and the river Thames. This will improve conditions for pedestrians and cyclists ensuring a legible place with clear linkages between destinations and improve the estate's connection with the rest of the borough and the wider city.
At the centre of our masterplan is the newly designed park which will become a unique space protected from York Road, available for residents of the new and existing surrounding neighbourhoods. A new street network will also improve access to the park and create a healthy and green environment for movement through the area.
Central to the improved neighbourhood is a new community building providing combined leisure, library, community and childrens centres. This hub of community space is positioned to optimise the views of and the buildings relationship with the park. Also clustered park side, is a reprovided improved health centre and a new workspace building, ensuring the delivery of the regeneration objectives of raising the life chances and aspirations of Wandsworth residents.
Who we are
Winstanley & York Road Regeneration LLP is the Joint Venture (JV) partnership between Wandsworth Borough Council and Taylor Wimpey to deliver the regeneration of the Winstanley and York Road estates.
The JV is made up of staff both from Wandsworth Borough Council and Taylor Wimpey, and we will deliver the redevelopment together. Joint working is essential to the success of the scheme so that local people are able to make the most of the opportunities created as a result of this regeneration. This includes employment and training opportunities (such as apprenticeships and workspace for business start ups) on and around the site, and we will also be bringing more sporting and cultural activities to the area during the regeneration.
The Winstanley & York Road regeneration visual identity has been designed by HTA Design LLP. This design has been inspired by the wall murals by William Mitchell which can be found on the Winstanley estate. Through our engagement process, we have started a programme working with residents to create new patterns. These patterns will then be used across the estate to create signs, public art, play areas and in the design of outside spaces.
