Tibbalds CampbellReith HCA team appointed to carry out Feasibility Studies for Kingston HRA sites

Tibbalds has been appointed by the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames (RBK) to lead a multidisciplinary team to carry out feasibility studies examining the potential of ten Council-owned garage sites to be brought forward for the development of affordable housing.

The initial phase of work involved detailed analysis of the constraints and opportunities facing the redevelopment of each site, including planning policy issues, urban design considerations, transportation and engineering constraints. Based on this analysis, Tibbalds prepared a range of conceptual development options which explored creative ways to maximise the provision of affordable housing while maintaining a high standard of residential amenity for both existing and new residents.

The final report has recently been submitted and will inform Members’ decision-making about proceeding to more detailed design and delivery.
