PRP’s design for a new scheme at High Path Plaza

Clarion Housing Group has submitted reserved matters planning applications for 284 homes on three housing estates in Merton as part of a £1bn regeneration development across the south London borough.

The housing association is working with PRP Architects, HTA Design, Levitt Bernstein, Proctor & Matthews and Cullinan Studio on the schemes.

The three sites are High Path in south Wimbledon and Ravensbury and Eastfields in Mitcham.

PRP is working on proposals for High Path, while HTA was brought in to focus on Ravensbury.

Levitt Bernstein is working with Proctor & Matthews and Cullinan Studio on proposals for the Eastfields Estate.

Of the 284 homes in the current planning application 191 will be for social rent and 93 for private sale.

The application includes 160sq m of community space.

Clarion has already been granted outline planning permission to deliver 2,800 new homes, including 740 social rented units, and 9,000sq m of commercial and community space across the three neighbourhoods in Merton.

Following the council’s decision, Clarion said it had been working closely with residents and the local community to enhance the designs, including the layouts and landscaping.

Clarion is currently developing 21 new homes on the disused garages site at Ravensbury and 134 homes on land not currently used for housing at High Path.

The housing association said every home was “earmarked for existing residents”.
