London and the south east welcome new residential developments in spite of Covid-19. Countryside has secured contracts with Homes England to deliver over 900 properties in Kent, and Hertfordshire, with two regeneration projects in Chatham – Brunel and Riverside – which sit within the Chatham History Dockyard Conservation Area. Spanning 2.7 hectares, the proposed mixed-use development will have the potential to deliver 274 new homes in addition to over 11,000 sq ft of commercial space.
In London, Southwark’s Virtual Planning Committee approves a 28-storey Residential Scheme, at 79-161 Ilderton Road which will comprise two buildings of 13 and 28 storeys, with 312 flats and commercial floorspace close to Old Kent Road. This includes 35% affordable housing and 12% affordable workspace. In north London, a regeneration scheme of the Grahame Park Estate, Colindale, has been approved which will see 2,088 new homes built in blocks up to 15 storeys high. Finally, a 450-home redevelopment of Clichy estate in east London is set to go ahead after more than 98% of residents voted in favour of the plans to replace three council blocks in Stepney, with the provision that 150 or more units require a residents’ ballot in order to receive Greater London Authority grant funding.
