The Urban Quarter

The Urban Quarter is the place for local communities to gather and make connections. It is busy, diverse and outward-looking.

The Urban Quarter is the location for most of the new buildings within the Alton, planned as a streetscape lined with shops and housing. It culminates in the new Village Square.

The square is located where three distinct, existing communities come together - Alton West, Alton East, and Roehampton Village. The square opens the estate up to the surrounding areas, while providing a flexible space for a changing programme of community events. Pride of place is given to a new community building including the new Roehampton Library, re-imagined for modern needs and opportunities.
