Welcome to the website for the Former Government Offices site in Tolworth
As you may be aware, the future of the Former Government Ofﬁces site, on the corner of Kingston Road and the A3, has been under consideration for many years. Earlier this year, an application to build 705 homes on the site, originally developed by the previous owner, was rejected by the Council.
Meyer Homes remains committed to delivering signiﬁcant investment in this site and since this decision, the project team has been considering our options and the best way to progress. We have therefore been looking to develop proposals which reﬂect the aspirations of the Greater London Authority to see this site deliver a greater number of new homes to the area than previously proposed. This includes an increase in the amount and proportion of affordable homes, meeting one of the new London Mayor’s most important manifesto commitments.
We will be working with the Council and others to ﬁnd a solution that is acceptable to everyone. To view more information about the alternative design approach the project team are taking to the site please click here.
We would be grateful if you would take a few moments to complete and submit a feedback form here.
For internal processes, the deadline for providing your comments is Monday 31st October 2016.
New design approach for the site
By reconfiguring the layout of the site and introducing a different design approach to the buildings on site the project team have been able to address the need for housing within Tolworth, while proposing a built form which is in keeping with existing housing types in the area.
As a result the proposed new application consists of the following:
- 952 new homes
- Doctor’s surgery
- Children’s day nursery
- Convenience store
- Retail unit for either a shop or a café
- A site management office
- Bus interchange adjacent to Tolworth Railway Station
- Energy centre including a combined cooling and power system
- Communal amenity and play space
- 356 residential car parking spaces
- Enhanced pedestrian and cycle routes along Hook Rise South and through the site
- Buildings within the height parameters of the previous scheme with a maximum of 10 storeys
- Increased level of open space
