A public exhibition is being held today for residents to view development plans to the Peabody Estate, close to Clapham Junction.

Plans are in place to redevelop the site, off Boutflower Road, in Battersea, to create 650 new homes and updated facilities.

The redevelopment scheme, funded by Peabody, aims to double the density of the site.

Peabody on its website said: "The current estate was built in 1936. It is outdated, with poor space standards and open areas, and too many places that encourage antisocial behaviour.

"Though we aim to double the density of the site, we will keep the same amount of open space."

Cyril Richert, of the Clapham Junction Action Group is concerned about the impact high rise buildings could have on the area.

He said: "Whatever the merit of the proposal, we still believe that some amendments are needed in order for us to support the scheme.

"This should be the purpose of their consultation, before a definite submission for planning permission in early 2012."

The public exhibition is being held in St Mark's Church Hall in Boutflower Road today from 4pm to 8pm, and November 19 from 10am to 2pm.
