We are focussed on continuing our work to ensure that Kingston is a fairer place, meaning that every resident is supported when needed throughout their lifetime, and has increased opportunities for a happy and healthy life.
An important part of this is working to meet the growing housing needs and aspirations of residents, through having the right mix of good quality housing and services to support those in need.
That is why we have been working with community stakeholders, internal colleagues and a design team to bring forward initial proposals to redevelop the former care home on Acre Road, Murray House, to provide genuinely affordable housing, at council rent levels, for Kingston’s older residents and for individuals with learning disabilities.
The scheme looks to create 40+ homes by regenerating an existing, well-located and vacant site, and will provide new private and public landscaping for all to use as part of a high-quality and sustainable, carbon neutral design.
Thank you to all of those who took part in our engagement events in October and November 2023, and gave us your feedback online. The team is currently reviewing the comments provided and will be working on the next stages of design work. Further engagement events are planning for the coming months.
