265 Burlington Road - 400+ Flats Proposed

Huge development Proposals for 265 Burlington Road

(and part of the Tesco Supermarket Car Park) 

We have recently learned - following an exhibition at the Holy Cross Church Hall on 18th September - that Redrow Homes are working up proposals for a Planning Application for a large housing scheme at 265 Burlington Road and that part of Tesco’s car park adjacent to Burlington Road 

The scheme as currently planned would be to construct more than 400 flats in several blocks - some very much higher than any other building in the locality. 

As we understand the situation the proposals are still being refined and are being discussed with the Planners at Merton Council. 

Currently it is proposed that there would be a mix of units 1, 2, and 3-bedroom flats, a large proportion of which would be 2-bed units, but no houses. 

In the main these flats would be for sale, but some would be part sale/part rental (under a shared ownership scheme). The current aim is to provide 35% of the development for “affordable” housing (meaning social or subsidized units). 

The plans, at present, suggest provision of over 200 car parking spaces for the new residents, who would have vehicle access to the new development from the existing short road leading from Tesco’s car park into Burlington road. Pedestrian access to Tesco itself from the Burlington Road side would be maintained. 

We are in contact with the agents acting for Redrow and hope to arrange a public meeting with them later in the year. We will try to provide more detail about this proposal as and when available.
