The joint venture will see thousands of homes and a number of inclusive non-residential uses delivered in the coming years, with the former Homebase site providing the location for the first.
We have been working with the Council and local people to design an inclusive residential neighbourhood which meets high standards of sustainability and delivers a mix of amenities for Goodmayes residents, both new and existing.
Our plans include a new public square, a mixture of commercial and community uses on the ground floor, landscaped green spaces, children's play areas, connections for pedestrians and cyclists and around 500 much-needed new homes for Londoners.
The development will have an innovative shared mobility hub housing bicycles and scooters for hire, a Digital Music Academy operated by our partners at Future DJs, as well as a gym and a restaurant or cafe.
Biosolar green roofs will increase biodiversity and aid air quality, as well as generating sustainable energy.
Prior to submitting an application, a programme of consultation and engagement was undertaken to share our vision and encourage local residents to submit their feedback on the proposals. Over 1,300 comments and suggestions were received from the public in advance of submitting a planning application.
The application received unanimous planning approval from Redbridge's Planning Applications Committee, with members referring to the application as ‘the best of the schemes coming forward in the Crossrail opportunity zone'.
