Hunters lands planning to redevelop prefab Excalibur Estate

[First look] Hunters has won planning permission for this controversial project to rebuild the post-war Excalibur Estate in Catford London

Built in the 1940s, the ‘prefab’ estate features six buildings listed at Grade II. The Twentieth Century Society has campaigned to save the development.

The scheme by Hammersmith-based studio Hunters, which scooped planning consent from Lewisham Council on 21 April, creates 371 new homes on the site for housing association London & Quadrant (L&Q).

James Wallace, director at Hunters said: ‘When it is built I’m sure the residents will enjoy the new sustainable community that has been designed for them.

‘L&Q have given the residents an opportunity to contribute and develop ideas in a creative forum and this masterplan represents four years of hard work and commitment from all sides.’

Jerome Geoghegan, L&Q group director development and sales said: ‘We have been working closely with residents of Excalibur who have informed our plans and had a big say in shaping our proposals for a new estate.’

The project features 228 affordable homes and 143 for private sale along with 296 car parking spaces and provision for parking 371 cycles.
