The site is a former NHS clinic. Whilst it is being used as a temporary vaccination centre in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a temporary use, with the clinic officially closing in 2019. All former services at the clinic have now been re-provided elsewhere in the borough and at the end of the COVID-19 vaccination programme the site will be vacant.

As required in the London Plan, 2,250 new homes are expected to be delivered in the borough of Kingston-upon-Thames over the next ten years. Therefore, the redevelopment of this brownfield site into 125 new homes will contribute towards Kingston’s demanding housing targets, whilst also providing new affordable homes for those in need in the local area.

In line with the redevelopment of the area through the proposals for the Cambridge Road Estate, there is the opportunity to deliver much-needed homes for Kingston on the site, including at least 50% affordable provision.

With the Hawks Road site bordering the Cambridge Road Estate on two sides, there is an opportunity for the proposals to complement and complete the Cambridge Road Estate masterplan. The proposals are, therefore, carefully designed to respond and respect the local existing context and complement the proposals for the Estate.

We are keen to hear your thoughts on our proposals and we held an online consultation from 21 October until 11 November. Further information will soon be uploaded to our project website.

We have also held an in-person exhibition on Thursday 21 October, between 3:30pm and 6:30pm at the Cornerstone Church Hub in Kingston, where you can hear from the project team about the proposals, ask questions and provide your feedback.

The proposed redevelopment will result in significant S106 and Community Infrastructure Levy payments to Kingston Council which will help fund improvements to local infrastructure.

The plans also include a range of benefits, such as landscaped amenity space, space for community facilities and at least 50% affordable housing – helping families get on the housing ladder and offering London Affordable rent properties.

The proposals are carefully designed to respond and respect the existing local context and complement the proposals for the Cambridge Road Estate.

The proposals also seek to optimise the delivery of much-needed new homes on the site, while limiting the impact on adjoining properties. Character elements including bay windows, contrasting brick colours and a varied roofline have been incorporated into the design to reflect the local character.

In response to the feedback received, London Square have revised their original plans to provide a more homogenous colour scheme throughout the exterior of the development.

The tallest point of the buildings will be 13 storeys. This reflects the adjacent Cambridge Road Estate regeneration proposals that were approved by Kingston Council Planning Committee in December 2021 and supported by local councillors.

The proposed height of the Hawks Road scheme then drops significantly to respect the more low-rise buildings to the site’s west and north. Together, the height, massing and materials help to reduce the impact of the development on the wider area, whilst still ensuring coherence between the site and regeneration of Cambridge Road Estate.

Considering the range of public transport links near to the site, including a number of bus routes, as well as both Kingston and Norbiton stations within 15 minutes’ walk, we are proposing an essentially car free development.

Four accessible parking spaces will be included. This will both reduce the impact of the development on surrounding roads, as well as its impact on the environment.

New residents of the scheme will also be unable to apply for parking permits in the local area, limiting the possibility of overspill parking
