Given there is so much happening in the ward at the moment, it might be worth residents keeping a watch on what is being planned for the Alton Estate. So, on a best endeavours basis, we’ll try to include this section.
The page numbers refer to the Wandsworth Council planning applications and decisions for the Roehampton & Putney Heath ward. Whilst every effort is made to highlight the page numbers and present the information below it is always best for the reader to have a read of the original Council documents just in case any errors have been made.
The Roehampton December 2016 crime figures were recently released and it is interesting that at the December Alton Regeneration Watch meeting a topic was how the regeneration will improve crime figures. Councillor Carpenter provided views on the topic though his focus was on ‘drug crime’ which from the figures shown for December 2016 is quite low as a proportion of the total crimes reported.
You will see that over the years anti-social behaviour has decreased though violence and sexual offences has increased. This used to be referred to as “violent crime” until May 2013. It will be fascinating to see how, or whether, the regeneration will impact these figures as according to the Supplementary Planning Document one of the “key drivers” for this document, though as of yet, there has been no firm plan shown to residents (at least according to conversations with Alton Estate residents) as to how ‘violence against the person’ and ‘criminal damage incidents’ will be dealt with by the regeneration?
PLEASE NOTE: All efforts to aggregate the data have been done on best efforts basis and if these are to used for any purpose it is strongly recommended that one conducts their own validation of the data produced.
Recently it was highlighted that there were car parking pressures in the Manresa neighbourhood of the Alton Estate (on the Alton East) which involves – Chilcombe House, Crondall House, Farnborough House, Kimpton House, Rushmere House and Somborne House.
Well, these blocks have to make do without 10 car parking spaces by Crondall House for a while whilst the blocks undergo double glazing installation. Not far away, the Alton East part of the regeneration will be underway at some time soon and this will likely have further impacts on car parking spaces. It is hoped that there is no overlap between these events otherwise there might be additional car parking pressures for residents to consider.
