A major phase of the Stag House development is now underway.

Prep work on the site of the former Stag House Community Youth Centre has been taking place since August last year, but now things are about to kick into gear.

The £7 million housing development will see 21 new homes built on the Putney Vale Estate, including 10 for those with physical and learning disabilities, including accommodation for an on-site support officer.

Speaking on the announcement, leader of Wandsworth Council Ravi Govindia said: “This is a demonstration of our commitment to build new homes which meet the diverse needs of our residents.

"Good quality housing is fundamental in supporting the wellbeing of our residents and we’re delighted to be partnering with Wates Residential on this scheme.

"I am also proud that this scheme is the first council build supported housing scheme for our more vulnerable residents which will give those with learning and physical disabilities the opportunity to live safely in a scheme built to the highest standards."

The scheme is due to be completed in Spring of 2020.
