Cambridge Road Estate Ballot

Date set for residents’ ballot to decide the future of the Cambridge Road Estate.

Between 24 February to 18 March 2020, residents of the Cambridge Road Estate will vote to decide whether the estate should be regenerated to deliver new high-quality, sustainable ‘greener’ homes that will take us into the future, along with a re-designed safer neighbourhood.

The ballot - a first for the borough - comes after many months working alongside the estate’s residents. The new plans for the estate have been shaped with the input of residents and will benefit thousands of future residents for generations to come.

There will be approximately 2,000 new homes which will be a mix of council housing, including an extra 114 council homes, and private housing, in mixed tenure layout and improved design: modern homes which are the right size, shared outside space with areas where children can play safely, and a new neighbourhood designed in collaboration with the Police to reduce antisocial behaviour and crime - a place for everyone to enjoy.

The ballot will be run independently by Civica Election Services (formerly known as the Electoral Reform Society). It is open to eligible residents of the estate only. Voting eligibility is set out by the Greater London Authority (GLA) as follows. 

  • Current social tenants (council or housing association) with secure, assured or introductory tenancies. 

  • Named leaseholders or freeholders who have lived in their home for 12 months. 

  • Other residents, living on the Cambridge Road Estate who have been named applicants on the housing register for 12 months.


Civica Election Services will post an official confirmation letter to announce the result approximately one week after the close of voting on 18 March 2020. For more information visit cambridgeroadestate.com.
