More than 150 homes to be built in Merton

Housing association Clarion has been given the green light for more than 150 homes in south-west London.

Merton council OK’d the firm’s plans for 179 homes at a plot in Mitcham along with a community centre. Clarion said more than 50% of the homes, a mix of one- and two-bedroom flats and two-, three-and four-bedroom houses, will be affordable.

The scheme forms part of Clarion’s wider regeneration project of Merton, which involves building 2,800 homes and 9,000 sq m of commercial and retail space across three neighbourhoods.

HTA is architect on the first phase of 21 homes with the entire scheme due to be completed in 2026.


The scheme was given planning last week
