The Tustin Estate is located to the north of the Old Kent Road and west of Ilderton Road. It's made up of three towers and six low-rise blocks, Pilgrims Way Primary School and a number of businesses fronting onto Old Kent Road.
In March 2021, residents voted in favour of demolishing and rebuilding the low-rise buildings in a residents’ ballot. This will include replacement council homes, additional council homes and key worker housing, shared equity homes and homes for private sale. There will also be a replacement school building, new commercial spaces and a new park. All existing residents will be able to move to a new council home in the first phase of the scheme.
You can find details of the council's commitments to residents in the Landlord Offer document (PDF, 3.8mb).
The council has worked with residents to develop the designs for the estate. We submitted a planning application in March 2022 and construction is expected to start in autumn 2022.
