Make submits post-Olympics Chobham Manor masterplan
Proposals for the first post-games neighbourhood on the Olympic Park have been submitted for planning
The 9.3 hectare scheme – designed by Make with PRP, Haworth Tompkins, Nord, Karakusevic Carson and Muf – was submitted to London Legacy Development Corporation planners this week.
The Taylor Wimpey and L&Q-backed project is part of a wider masterplan to create 6,800 new homes on the enormous east London plot which won outline planning permission last year.
The Chobham Manor masterplan features 850 homes alongside community facilities, shops and open space. Three quarters of the properties have more than three or more bedrooms.
London Legacy Development Corporation chief executive Dennis Hone said: ‘This milestone demonstrates the tremendous progress being made on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
‘Housing is hugely important and Chobham Manor will set the tone for the high quality neighbourhoods we want to create across the Park with new schools, health centres and community spaces to support them that will serve generations of Londoners to come.’
Simon Brown, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London, added: ‘The submission of the Zonal Masterplan is a significant milestone for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
‘We will be unveiling our detailed development plans for public inspection at a series of events which will be held in the local area.
‘The events are due to take place during the summer and will be publicised well in advance to ensure local people have every opportunity to attend.’
The first homes are expected to complete in late 2014.
