How the proposed scheme will look

Housebuilder Hill Group and Poplar HARCA plan to build 1,900 new homes, 35% of which will be for affordable tenures over five phases.

The partnership has submitted an outline planning application for all phases of the masterplan, including detailed proposals for the first phase of development.

Phase one is set to deliver 475 homes, 45% of which will be for affordable tenures. Subject to approvals, the project is scheduled to start onsite in April 2025, with the first homes expected to be completed by 2028. The entire project, which will see 535 existing homes demolished, is forecast to be completed by 2042.

The masterplan, which covers eight hectares, is designed by architects BPTW. The plans include new shops, commercial spaces, a community centre along with a new foot-tunnel under the A12.

A ballot of residents found 86% of respondents to be in favour of regenerating the estate.

Paul Dooley, director of regeneration and development at Poplar HARCA, added:

“The project has already made a real impact in terms of social value. Local residents have been instrumental in shaping these plans and we are committed to making sure this exciting programme of regeneration reflects the things that matter most to them.”
