L&Q buys depot site

London & Quadrant has acquired a former council depot and coach and lorry park near Wandsworth roundabout where it plans to build 139 homes.

L&Q plans to start work soon on the site of the vacant depot in Eltringham Street after purchasing the land from the council. Planning permission has already been granted.

The housing association’s land and projects director Andy Rowland said: “L&Q will build high-quality homes for people on a range of incomes, bringing new life to a disused site and creating a welcome addition to the local community.”

Wandsworth’s cabinet member for housing Cllr Paul Ellis added: “This will breathe new life into a classic brownfield site and act as a strong catalyst for regeneration in the area.”

The site had been used for around 30 years to provide parking for the council’s fleet of school buses and coaches and for some other large vehicles all of which have now moved to another council-owned site in Dormay Street.

L&Q has also acquired a site in nearby York Road from the council, which has permission 17 new affordable homes for rent.
