New Development Nears Completion

Published: 01/11/2022 By Allan Fuller

A topping out ceremony has taken place at the Kersfield Estate development at Lytton Grove in Putney. 

This means that the final brick has been laid and all that remains is the fitting out of the interior of 41 new homes which is expected to be completed by next spring.

Councillor Aydin Dikerdem, Wandsworth’s Cabinet Member for Housing, attended the ceremony and announced that there was to be a switch in the tenures at which the properties are to be offered. They would now all be available at social rent as part of the council’s programme to deliver 1,000 units on this basis. Previously 27 of the units were to be sold on the market.

The site will also provide new play spaces for young children and improvements to the landscaping around the new development and to existing buildings.

Cllr Dikerdem said, “Delivering more affordable housing and maximising the council’s stock of affordable housing is a key target for this administration. We will continue to deliver high-quality homes, like those at Kersfield, that are accessible and adaptable to suit the needs of our residents.”
