Greenwich approves £1 billion Ferrier Estate regeneration

  • Comment

Greenwich Council has given the thumbs-up to Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ masterplan for the £1 billion redevelopment of the 1960s Ferrier Estate in Kidbrooke, south-east London

Under the plans – which represent one of Europe’s largest housing regeneration schemes – the existing sink estate will be demolished and 4,000 homes will be built. It will also include shops, offices, a school, a health centre, sports facilities and more than 50ha of open space.

Demolition of the estate has already begun, with the first residents expected to move in next year.

Landscape architect Gillespies is working alongside Lifschutz Davidson Sandiland on the masterplan.

The council has also given the go-ahead to the detailed proposal for phase one of the regeneration. This includes 449 houses and apartments – 220 for private sale and 229 affordable homes.

A spokeswoman for Berkeley Homes Urban Developments, project partner along with the Southern Housing Group and the Homes and Communities Agency, said: ‘The demolition is the first outward sign that the site is now underway and will be one of the biggest regeneration projects in the UK, outside of the Olympic Park.’
