The borough’s council estates are set to get a multi-million pound programme of improvements.

More than £6.5m will be spent on everything from new windows to lifts and hot water systems in neighbourhoods across the borough.

The estates include the Patmore and Carey Gardens estates in Battersea, the Alton in Roehampton, the Ashburton in Putney, the Magdalen Park estate in Earlsfield and Wandsworth’s Morris Gardens estate.

The council spends about £50m a year on repairs and improvements to its housing estates.

Housing spokesman, Councillor Paul Ellis, said: “The council has a long and sustained record of investment in local housing estates to ensure that tenants and leaseholders live in good quality accommodation.

“There is a continuous programme of works to upgrade roofs, windows, lifts, entry-call systems, CCTV, heating systems, kitchens, bathrooms and communal areas.

“It is by providing decent homes, having a programme of continuous investment and improvement, and by completing repairs quickly and efficiently that has led 82 per cent of our tenants to say they are satisfied with the landlord services they receive.”
