The Malden Independent Community Organisation is campaigning with local residents to ensure that the cost of a pool and leisure centre in New Malden is not a concrete jungle in the Cocks Crescent and Blagdon Road area.
Current figures within the Cocks Crescent SPD state that up to 520 new homes could be built in the Cocks Crescent and Blagdon Road area, which is on top of 200 flats set to be built at Spillers and the Multi-Storey, 50 flats at Sun Gate House and a further 45 flats at Park House. Totalling these figures together gives a staggering number of 815 flats – only 15 less than the number of homes on the Cambridge Estate!

This vast number of flats will inevitably put pressure on infrastructure and parking in the local area, which already struggles to meet demand. In addition, the scheme will see building on the open space – we are arguing that this must be preserved and relocated elsewhere.
We are asking residents to support our campaign by writing to their Councillors, and, more crucially, attending Guildhall on the 23rd November at 7:30pm to have their voice heard by the Growth Committee. It is here that residents will have the opportunity to make their case to Councillors and let them know that 520 extra flats in the area is simply unsustainable. Please do join us – we’re stronger together.
