Working with Countryside, Kingston Council is building over 100 much-needed affordable new council homes for its residents.


All the homes will be high quality and sustainable, benefitting Kingston residents for generations to come and supporting the council’s aim to reduce the borough’s carbon emissions.

Daniel King, managing director, West London and Thames Valley, Countryside, said: 

“With a proven track record in creating sustainable communities, we are proud to be making significant progress in delivering additional 100 high-quality council homes across the borough with Kingston Council. 

“Already in partnership with the council to deliver the regeneration of the Cambridge Road Estate, we are committed to improving the quality and affordability of housing in Kingston, of which these sites play a key part.”

Work is already underway on three sites across the borough: Cumberland House in Kingston, Cambridge Road in Kingston and York Way in Chessington.

The project is part of an ambitious development programme across the Council’s portfolio, including the regeneration of the Cambridge Road Estate.

Building new council homes is one of several ways Kingston Council is working with partners to meet housing needs in the borough.

Kingston is working closely with housing associations such as RHP on the Mayor of London’s Shared Ownership Scheme to increase the amount of affordable housing in Kingston and are consulting on a new approach for the homeless of the borough.
