Stock Woolstencroft design for the Greenwich Peninsula project in London

Bellway Homes, one of the UK’s top four housebuilders, has just received planning permission to build 229 homes at Greenwich Peninsula, London’s largest single regeneration project. These homes represent the first residential phase in the development of 80 hectares of Greenwich Peninsula over the next 15 years. Work at the site should start late 2007 with residents moving in towards the end of 2009. The £5 billion Greenwich Peninsula regeneration scheme – creating a new riverside community for London - is being led by joint venture partners Lend Lease and Quintain Estates and Development PLC, working with English Partnerships, the UK Government’s national regeneration agency. Bellway will build a mixture of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom flats, maisonettes and townhouses on the southern part of the Peninsula overlooking the Thames. 60 of these homes will be for affordable housing, designed to meet Housing Corporation Scheme Development Standards.Endorsing the Peninsula’s strong sustainability agenda all of the homes will have, at the very least, an EcoHomes ‘Excellent’ rating. Bellway are also investigating further opportunities for renewable energy initiatives to be adopted as part of this development. The landscaped green and brown roof terraces together with cascading green facades are designed to encourage local wildlife as well as providing residents with communal green spaces. In addition residents can take advantage of the communal courtyards and riverside terraces with spectacular views of the river Thames.The £5 billion Greenwich Peninsula regeneration scheme – creating a new riverside community for London - is being led by joint venture partners Lend Lease and Quintain Estates and Development PLC, working with English Partnerships, the UK Government’s national regeneration agency.
