A mixed development at Peruvian Wharf in East London will feature 1,500 homes and a working aggregates wharf

Plans have been revealed for a £300m mixed-use regeneration scheme at Peruvian Wharf in East London.

The plans submitted to Newham Council include nearly 1,500 homes, 35% of which will be affordable. There will also be 600,000sq ft of commercial space, which will provide employment for 1,700 people in addition to those jobs created during construction.

The 20-acre site opposite the Millennium Dome is currently the largest cleared site in London. If it gets planning permission Peruvian Wharf will feature a working aggregates wharf, a new DLR station to be called West Silvertown, and a large tree-lined boulevard running from the station to the Thames.

The commercial offices includes small office space and their will be an hotel with bar and restaurant, leisure facilities and neighbourhood retail units.

Sir Robin Wales, Leader of London Borough of Newham, said: “We are keen to see the delivery of high quality, mixed use regeneration on the Peruvian Wharf site. Our officers will now scrutinise the application and bring forward their recommendations to our planning committee in due course.”

The owner of the land Capital and Provident acquired the site in 1999 and has already cleared the site.
