Levitt Bernstein, PRP and HTA scoop Merton regeneration job

  • Comment

Levitt Bernstein, PRP and HTA Design have been chosen to work on the regeneration of the London Borough of Merton

The three practices will draw up residential plans for three areas of the south-west London borough; Levitt Bernstein for Eastfields, PRP Architects for the High Path area, and HTA Design for Ravensbury.

The plans include the demolition and redevelopment of more than 1,200 homes, and propsals include new-build housing, public space and community facilities.

Levitt Bernstein, HTA and PRP will now work with local residents on the plans.

The three practices were selected ‘based on previous work on large-scale urban regeneration projects’.

Barry McCullough at Levitt Bernstein Associates said: ‘Despite being close to the academy and some well-loved leisure facilities, the Eastfields neighbourhood doesn’t feel linked to its surroundings. We want to work with residents and the Circle Housing Merton Priory team to connect it with the local area by creating an attractive layout including safe streets and open spaces that are used by all at all hours of the day.’

PRP Architects Manisha Patel commented: ‘Our vision for High Path is of a sustainable, high quality neighbourhood where people will be proud to live. Our drive has been and will always be the creation of a new neighbourhood that recognises the local community values.’

Paul Maddock from HTA Design added: ‘Ravensbury is a close-knit community in a unique setting. HTA’s master planning team is delighted to be working with residents, local organisations and the team at Circle Housing Merton Priory to develop ideas for its transformation into an attractive, thriving and sustainable Merton neighbourhood.’

The schemes are expected to be submitted for planning in 2015.
