Work is now set to begin later this month (January 2022) on phases two and three of the Ravensbury estate in Mitcham, part of Clarion’s wider regeneration project being delivered in partnership with Merton Council.

The £1.3billion regeneration programme is providing 2,700 quality new homes – alongside 9,000 square meters of community and commercial space across three Merton neighborhoods, including Ravensbury.

The £30.5million contract awarded to Henry Construction will deliver 105 houses and apartments at Ravensbury over the next two phases of delivery.

Clarion Housing Group has selected Henry Construction as its delivery partner for the next two phases of a landmark regeneration scheme in the London borough of Merton.

As well as the phases introducing affordable new homes, ongoing work at the site are planning to deliver better vehicle and pedestrian access, improve public areas and increase the number of trees and open green space.

Richard Cook, Group Director of Development at Clarion Housing Group, said: “We are pleased to partner Henry Construction Projects and begin the next two phases of homes at Ravensbury alongside Merton Council.

“This marks another major milestone in our wider regeneration of the area, which is creating a sustainable community of good quality and affordable new homes for existing residents.”

Merton Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Regeneration and the Climate Emergency, Cllr Martin Whelton, said: “It’s great news that work will be starting shortly on the next phases of the rebuilding of Ravensbury estate.

“This regeneration will see hundreds of new homes re-built for residents including those living in overcrowded accommodation along with providing additional new homes.

"As a council we will be working alongside Clarion and its partners – such as Henry Construction – to deliver this scheme and vital new housing for residents.”

To help redevelop the area, Clarion Housing Group collaborated with existing residents and the local community.

The work on phases two and three at Ravensbury, which also includes building a new community centre, is scheduled to complete in June 2025.
