We are currently engaging with local residents and members of the public on our proposals to redevelop the site of a disused office building on Ewell Road in Surbiton into 59 new homes. We have exhibited the scheme at a drop-in exhibition where we discussed our proposals for a part 3-storey to part 6-storey residential building with visitors and are also meeting with local resident groups.
Our proposals grasp the opportunity of improving the Ewell Road streetscape with a landscaped frontage, new street trees and a series of elegant brick buildings that make the most of the corner position.
The scheme also increases the green space on site, retaining high quality existing trees, increasing biodiversity and making a valuable contribution to the green aspect and feel of the setting.
The building fabric will be specified to reduce heat losses through high levels of insulation and air tightness, designed to the Mayor’s target of zero carbon emissions. It is also proposed to incorporate sustainable urban drainage to help manage rain water run-off.
A range of high-quality accommodation for a mixture of tenures will be provided with both private and affordable dwellings promoting improved health and well-being for the residents and neighbours.
