Regeneration Principles & Vision

The masterplan was approved in October 2014, derived from a series of public engagement events, which created the principles from which the regeneration vision is formed.

new homes

New Homes & High Quality Buildings

A variety of replacement and new affordable homes, to help assist in meeting the borough’s housing need, as well as reducing overcrowding in existing homes. All existing tenants and resident homeowners have the choice to remain living on the Alton Estate.

community spaces

Community Spaces & Jobs

New multi-purpose community buildings offering flexible, adaptable and inspiring spaces will be built. These new spaces will create focal points for community interaction, activity, creativity and learning. Jobs will also be created through these new community spaces, with new workspaces and commercial space provided.

strong placemaking

Strong Placemaking

The regeneration uses placemaking principles, well-designed architecture and public realm, which is supported by a cultural strategy. This all helps to celebrate the special qualities of the estate through engagement with the local community.

green spaces

Improved Green Spaces & Public Realm

The design provides high quality and improved green open space, including lots of new tree planting. Building on the fantastic existing green spaces, improved safe and secure landscaped areas will be available for people to enjoy and spend time in, with sport, leisure, health and social well-being all promoted within the estate.


Better Connections

The estate will have improved connections, with clearer road junctions, safer streets, improvements to public transport links and additional pedestrian and cycling routes.

Respecting Heritage

The masterplan design uses good quality and sympathetic design to reveal and enhance the character and setting of heritage buildings on the estate and complement the existing townscape.
