Explore the 800 new homes and vibrant community being created by our regeneration of Eastfields in Merton.
The redevelopment in Eastfields will create 800 new homes and enhance the local area with new retail, leisure, office and community spaces.
Eastfields is part of our £1bn Merton Regeneration Project, creating 2,800 homes: replacing 1,000 existing homes and building 1,800 new homes.
- 800 new flats, maisonettes and terrace houses.
- Central green space with tree-lined streets and areas.
- Improved access to surrounding areas and facilities.
- Overcrowding reduced by rehousing residents according to needs.
We consulted with residents about restarting the planning application for phase one of Eastfields and the first 198 new homes this summer. These will include houses, flats and maisonettes. Some will be for Clarion tenants and others for resident homeowners who have chosen to stay on Eastfields.
A consultation booklet was sent to residents with details of the layouts of the new homes; green spaces and play areas; the materials we plan to use; and some of the fittings for the new homes. These have all been developed following feedback from residents and input from the Council’s planning officers.
Explore the new Eastfields
Eastfields will be regenerated to enhance living standards in the area, retaining and improving central green space with lots of trees. A ball court and park will provide space for games.
Safety will be improved by combining traditional streets with front gardens to create safer routes and improve access.
There will be new street connections between Mulholland Close and Acacia Road, and traffic calming between Woodstock Way and Tamworth Lane. New retail space on Acacia Road will provide space for shops and cafes.
What you can expect
- Private garden, balcony or terrace for each home.
- Improved safety, access, parking and bin storage.

The one and two-bedroom flats are flexible and spacious, with dedicated space for utilities giving you more space for your family. Each flat will enjoy its own private garden, balcony or terrace.
