IQL North,
Stratford E20

Acquiring the 3.18-acre site in January 2022, Hadley has been working on proposals to deliver a transformative mixed-use development on the eastern edge of Stratford's Olympic Park.

Our on-site meanwhile uses, alongside the completed development, will seek to provide a physical and economic link directly to the park from Stratford and beyond. To deliver this project, Hadley is working alongside an award-winning team, partnering with Mecanoo, Delva, Buro Happold and Deloitte.

Following three rounds of consultation and extensive engagement with the community, LLDC, Newham and other stakeholder groups, we have now submitted our planning application to the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC). IQL North will include a mix of accommodation types, with 700+ 1, 2 and 3-bed homes and 900+ Purpose Built Student Accommodation, including affordable housing provision across the scheme. Through tenure-blind design and high-quality publicly accessible space, our proposals promote a genuinely mixed community underpinned by inclusivity and integration.

Central to our proposals is creating a new home for our meanwhile space, The LightHouse and Gardens, and the community that has evolved around it. The LightHouse will be re-provided in the completed development with an expanded offer, including a community kitchen, space to support social enterprise and charitable groups and a new home for the Good Growth Hub, which will facilitate job creation, creative training and linking local people to employment opportunities. Similarly, the ethos of our community garden will continue in the completed scheme, with growing spaces, biodiverse gardens and event space creating places to nurture the relationships established at our meanwhile space.

We aspire to create a new destination for residents and visitors to the E20 area. Plans for our commercial provision and public realm space have also evolved, with the completed offer set to provide new food and beverage provisions, retail stores, a gym, flexible co-working space and diverse public realm space for all residents and visitors to enjoy, including extensive urban greening, new public squares and performance space and formal and informal play space.

With a diverse programme of events and drop-in opportunities, The LightHouse and Gardens has offered an excellent opportunity to engage the community and discover what really matters to local people, bringing our development proposals to where they are today. Public consultation formally began in October 2022, displaying early principle concepts for the development to residents and the wider community via our virtual exhibition space and at The LightHouse. Consultation feedback has continued to inform the evolution of our proposals, the results of which we presented at our third round of consultation in July 2023.
