The £1.5 billion Heygate Estate masterplan outlines the blueprint for the redevelopment of the 23 acre south London Estate. Plans include the largest new park in central London for 70 years and up to 2,500 new homes, shops and leisure facilities.
Southwark Council and Lend Lease unveiled the final masterplan proposals today at the scheme’s Consultation Hub located on Wandsworth Road. The exhibition is open to the public, who can view the proposals until Saturday 25 February.
Lend Lease has applied to Southwark Council for its approval to allow Lend Lease to formally submit for planning their outline masterplan for the whole of Heygate Estate. A decision is due by March.
The concept masterplan, consulted on at the end of last year, outlined a series of high rise buildings, including three towers of 25, 27, and 35 storeys high, which would provide a mixture of residential and commercial space. The proposals included up to 2,500 homes, of which there was a 25% minimum level of affordable housing.
The masterplan proposals for the Estate included the construction of 54,000 square feet of office space and around 50,000 sq ft of leisure and community space, including a new leisure facility with a swimming pool, sports hall, gym and a new crѐche and café.
Southwark Council has been working on the regeneration project since 2002 and, following a series of failed agreements, appointed Lend Lease as its preferred development partner in 2007.
Make Architects was appointed in 2004 to work on the development framework and has worked with Southwark Council and Lend Lease to produce a masterplan for the regeneration project.
