From the "Framework for Development" on CD-rom - I don't write this stuff. The "South Newington Regeneration Cluster" mentioned appears to be the open spaces around Hanworth House (is it part of the Brandon Estate) at the junction of Camberwell New Road and John Ruskin Street.
" IPG 1.7HA: Housing: Relocation of Heygate residents.
Heygate Estate occupies a key area within the core site. It is proposed that as part of the redevelopment process that the buildings will be demolished and the existing social housing units (1,100 public sector) will be re-provided on key sites around the
Elephant & Castle.
As part of the Framework process a number of alternative sites have been considered. This information was presented to the Executive on 11 February 2003. As a result a list of key sites and locations have been confirmed as having the potential to deliver
new housing development to accommodate the residents transferred from the Heygate Estate (see Figure 6.4).
The majority of these sites are included within four new regeneration areas or clusters that have been identified as part of the Framework process (see Figure 6.4):
• Harper Road
• St. Mary's Churchyard.
• Rodney Road.
• South Newington.
It is anticipated that the new housing proposed within each of these areas or clusters will be brought forward in the context of area based improvement strategies, each of
which will comprise a series of projects and initiatives designed to tackle issues including:
• Safety and security.
• Quality of the public/ private realm.
• Quality of existing open space.
• The upgrading of existing and the provision of new facilities.
• Traffic management and car parking.
It is anticipated that these area based strategies will be brought forward for consultation with local residents in the period to September 2003 and will be adopted within part two of the Framework IPG (see Figure 6.2).
In addition to defining the environmental improvement projects that will be brought forward in parallel with the implementation of the new housing development, each strategy will:
• Confirm the location and extent of each of the proposed housing sites.
• Contain building specific guidance for each of the proposed housing sites that will address issues including design, density, house type, tenure mix, energy efficiency, standards in terms of mobility, Lifetime Homes standards, treatment of the public/ private realm, and car parking."
