The Royal Borough of Greenwich is welcoming the appointment of a design team to lead a major regeneration program in Thamesmead. Two major new housing zones in Thamesmead have been identified by the Mayor of London, with a proposed investment of more than £80 million - to see nearly 3,000 new homes built for rent and purchase, as well as thousands of new jobs for local people. Importantly, nearly half of the new homes will be affordable.

This follows successful bids for housing zone designation put forward by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the London Borough of Bexley in partnership with Peabody. Building on the success of the Royal Borough’s bid, Peabody has now appointed the design team to take the program forward. Proctor and Matthews Architects have been appointed project leader and design team co-ordinator to develop a strategic master plan for the regeneration. They will work in partnership with Dutch practice Mecanoo to develop the master plan, which will focus on the delivery of thousands of new homes and jobs over the next ten years, making this one of the largest regeneration projects in the capital in an area that will benefit from Crossrail in 2018.
