An overspill estate is a housing estate built to ease overcrowding on an existing housing estate. It may not be adjacent to the existing estate but located elsewhere in the city or town. In postwar Britain, they were built usually on greenfield land on the periphery of towns and cities to accommodate those displaced by the slum clearance programs in the inner-cities.
