Balham Town Centre Improvements

Wandsworth Council and The Balham Partnership secured £1.9million to encourage people to explore, enjoy and invest in Balham town centre.

£1,437,855 came from the Outer London Fund (OLF) Round 2, which was set up by the then Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to help liven up the capital’s town centres.

£511,648 came from a variety of sources including Transport for London, The Balham Partnership, Wandsworth Council and business sponsorship with works completed in 2016.


The objectives of the programme are for more people to:



Explore Balham to encourage greater footfall outside the short central stretch of Balham High Road.


Enjoy Balham to improve the experience of key public spaces in Balham town centre.


Invest in Balham to unlock the development potential of key sites close to Balham Station.

The funding will be spent on a series of local projects including public realm improvements:
