Olympic legacy: Custom-build homes mooted

  • Comment

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) is considering featuring custom-build housing on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

The organisation has opened a consultation to explore the potential for including resident-designed homes in the future redevelopment of the 100 hectare park.

An online survey has been launched to gauge the public’s interest in designing and constructing their own home on the high-profile Stratford site.

The survey covers costs, typologies, design quality and motivation for self-build. It also investigates whether the public would prefer an architect to design their home and the level of involvement which they would like to have on any project.

At this stage there is no commitment and any decision will be influenced by the results of the survey - which remains open until 9 April.

Dennis Hone, chief executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation, said: ‘We want to create successful communities on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park by offering a diverse range of housing that attracts everyone.

‘Custom Build would give people greater control of their home’s construction meaning that families could create their perfect home. This survey is a chance for people to tell us whether they would be interested in being involved.’

The Legacy Corporation has planned to build up to 8,000 new homes over the next 18 years. More than 40 per cent of these will be for families and 35 per cent will be affordable homes.
