An additional 104 authority owned properties will now be included as part of Phase 1 of the project taking the total to 254.

There are approximately 3,700 households on Kingston’s housing register waiting for a home.

The Cambridge Road Estate regeneration will now provide a total of 871 new council homes once all 5 phases of the scheme are complete.

This is 218 more than on the original estate.

The majority of residents voted in favour of regeneration but some have said the council house allocation was not high enough.

The development is not expected to be completed for another 10 years.
