Bellway is to deliver new tennis courts, a multi-use games area, a five-a-side football pitch, a children’s playground and an additional investment of £1.32 million in local sports facilities as part of the development.

Daniel Williamson, Sales Director for Bellway South London, said: “This development will bring a collection of high-quality homes to the area in a variety of styles and sizes that will meet the needs of first-time buyers, growing families, and downsizers. With work now underway at Cavendish Grove, we are looking forward to launching the development to the public this summer.

“Moreover, we will be continuing the legacy of LESSA which, until it closed its doors in 2000, provided a valuable resource where people could come together to enjoy their chosen sport. We are not only delivering new facilities for a range of popular sports as part of the development but also making a significant contribution to off-site sporting provision including £1.1 million for the Joseph Hood Recreation Ground.

“The new tennis courts and an outdoor gym will be delivered in the early build stages. This investment will mean that the new residents and people from the wider community will be able to enjoy sporting activities in their local neighbourhood.

“Cavendish Grove is in a great location as it is well-connected by road and rail to the rest of London. It’s just a 15-minute walk to Raynes Park station which has local services to Guildford, Hampton Court, and Richmond, as well as direct trains to London Waterloo taking as little as 20 minutes. Motorists will benefit from easy access to the A3 and A24 for trips to central London and the wider region.

“We’re expecting this to be an extremely popular development with buyers and we hope to start welcoming new residents into their completed homes at Cavendish Grove fromSummer 2025.
