Clarion Housing Group’s* planning application to regenerate the Sutton Estate, Chelsea, which was developed over many years with residents, local councillors, RBKC officers, representative bodies and the local community was refused by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in November 2016.


We were deeply disappointed with this decision and so in June 2017, Clarion lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate as we firmly believe regeneration is the best option for both our current and future residents and to secure the future of social housing in Chelsea.


To try and reach agreement with RBKC and the Mayor of London, Clarion proposed revisions to the Appeal Scheme, and has submitted these for consultation. These proposals seek to provide more social rented housing on site, and reduce the private housing. 


We are now consulting on the Revised Appeal Scheme and interested parties are invited to attend our public consultation events on Saturday, 17th February and Monday, 19th February 2018.  


  • All of our residents will remain on the Estate.
  • All our residents will retain their security of tenure and pay social rents.
  • Residents will move straight into their brand new homes.
