Tulse Hill: Play boost for estate

The project saw 70 per cent of the estate resurfaced, as well as the installation of the new playground, extra cycling storage, bin sheds, traffic calming measures and a rain garden created to help prevent flooding.

The estate, which runs on either side of Tulse Hill, and partly backs onto Brockwell Park has almost 900 properties. The improvement works were decided upon in partnership with the estate’s residents via a series of meetings and conversations.

Cllr Sonia Winifred, estate representatives and local children toured the estate on Tuesday to inspect the work and to discuss local issues.

Councillor Maria Kay, Cabinet Member for Housing and Homelessness, said: “I’m delighted that these works have been completed, it’s a real improvement to the look and feel of the estate, as well as providing important new infrastructure like bin stores and bike racks.

“Meetings were held with residents to decide what work should be done and they were follow up get togethers. Its great to now see the fruits of everyone’s labour here.”

Improvements to the estate included:

  • Resurfacing of the roadways
  • Traffic calming measures, including a one-way system
  • New line markings
  • Creation of angled parking spaces
  • Community designed green spaces
  • New bin stores
  • New cycles stores
  • Creation of a rain garden
