Wandsworth announces more estate upgrades

Wandsworth Council has unveiled its latest wave of improvements for local housing estates.

Around £6.7m has been earmarked to upgrade homes and neighbourhoods, including on the Doddington estate in Battersea, Putney’s Ashburton, The Aboyne estate in Earlsfield and the Glen Albyn and Ackroydon estates in Southfields.

The works range from new windows, new roofs and upgraded entrycall security systems to new heating and hot water systems and internal and external redecorations.

One project in this wave is the £2.1m spend on new windows for homes in the Carslake Road and Innes Gardens part of the Ashburton estate. Another, for Turpin House and Connor Court on the Doddington, will deliver a new heating and hot water system.

Housing spokesman Cllr Paul Ellis said: “As a result of this ongoing investment, Wandsworth was able to meet the Government’s target of reaching the decent homes standard for all its 33,000 properties a full five years before the deadline.”
