Planning permission has been granted to build 75 homes in Wimbledon Hill Park, but only 18 will be affordable.

Berkeley Homes is the developer behind the project and its sales director, Tim Pettman, said work was expected to begin in summer this year.

“Wimbledon Hill Park has proven extremely popular so far, and this new phase offers further opportunity for buyers to be a part of it," he said.

"Professionals will be attracted by the convenient location – close to the A3 yet enjoying the benefits of a village-style position – while local downsizers will find that a home at Wimbledon Hill Park continues to support their lifestyle.”

In terms of the location, a statement put out by the development company highlighted the "luxury amenities" close by.

"Wimbledon village is just minutes away, offering residents an array of boutique shops, bars and restaurants," it said.

"The sought-after area is world-renowned for its famous tennis tournament, while The Royal Wimbledon Golf Club is located in the centre of Wimbledon Common and Wimbledon RFC is home to one of the country’s oldest rugby clubs.

"For commuters, trains to London Waterloo take just 17 minutes from Wimbledon Station, and tube services reach Sloane Square on the District Line in under 30 minutes.

"Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 is also approximately 35 minutes away by car.

Set in the grounds of what was once the 2nd Duke of Wellington’s ancestral home, this is the third phase of the development which will also see the former Wolfson Centre turned into 85 apartments.

That site doesn't boast many affordable homes either though

Of the 85 homes, just 25 (or 30 per cent) will be classed as affordable.

In a planning statement for the Wolfson development it highlighted the need to move fast on the site.

"There is a window of opportunity to ensure that the development of the Wolfson site follows on directly from the construction of the Atkinson Morley Hospital, and ensure that the site does not sit vacant for an extended period of time," It said.
