Peabody is working with the London Borough of Bexley to deliver around 1,500 new homes on sites along Harrow Manorway through the Mayor of London’s Housing Zone programme. These plans will transform the route along from Abbey Wood station into South Thamesmead to coincide with the arrival of the Elizabeth line to the area.
The proposals include more than 500 new homes, a new library, commercial spaces and lakeside square at the Southmere Village site next to Southmere Lake. There will also be around 1,000 new homes at Coralline Walk, Binsey Walk and Sedgemere Road over the next ten years.
The first planning applications were submitted to the London Borough of Bexley in spring 2016. If approved, the first developments would begin in 2017.
This is one of two Housing Zones to be delivered in Thamesmead by Peabody in partnership with the London Borough of Bexley and the Royal Borough Greenwich with more than £47.5m investment from the Greater London Authority.
Alongside these plans, Peabody has put forward proposals for a large investment across South Thamesmead over the next ten years.
These proposals include redevelopment of the Wolvercote Road area, refurbishment of the tower blocks in the Parkview and Southmere neighbourhoods and a big transformation of the public realm.
