Developer Lend Lease has submitted plans for the first new homes to built as part of the massive Elephant & Castle regeneration scheme
The developer submitted the detailed planning application for 235 new homes for the first phase of the Heygate Regeneration, which is a 1.1ha site located adjacent to the Heygate Estate along Rodney Road and Victory Community Park.
The homes are planned to achieve Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. Almost half of the development will be made up of publicly accessible and bio diverse landscaped habitats, including a new tree-lined pedestrian street that will improve pedestrian and cycle connections in the area.
The homes will vary in size from studios to four bedrooms and will be delivered across eight residential buildings of varying height, with a commitment to provide a minimum of 25% affordable homes.
The homes will be set within a variety of landscaped habitat areas which include: a woodland walk; a rain pool and wetland feature that filters rain water into the ground slowly; and a garden square and al fresco café space for residents and the wider community to enjoy.
