Building on Ravensbury’s green setting to enhance biodiversity, improve water management and provide high quality new homes.

The existing neighbourhood

Ravensbury, Mitcham is a neighbourhood of around 200 homes. Almost half of those are concrete, non-traditionally constructed Orlitt Homes, built as emergency housing after WW2. Many others are poorly constructed, small, one bedroom flats. The estate sits between two parks and adjacent to the River Wandle. The regeneration work underway offers modern, brick-built properties set in a beautifully landscaped community.

The new homes themselves will have individual air source heat pumps. The first 21 homes have already been completed. Another 54 will be ready in 2024. All are earmarked for existing residents.

Green landscaping

The improvements underway at Ravensbury echo the high levels of community engagement that went into their planning. Reflecting resident’s wishes, no new building will be taller than the existing buildings. Most importantly, the landscape within the estate and its connections to local green space are to be significantly improved.

This will include the introduction of sustainable urban drainage and flood attenuation measures. Many new trees will be planted and green space created, including the replacement of a long lost rose garden.

Ravensbury Regeneration

The Ravensbury regeneration was driven by the need to replace homes that had come to the end of their life, but the existing community is central to its success. We are working with residents to ensure they’re happy in their new neighbourhood. Find out more below:
