South-east London plans will treble number of homes at Brookhill Estate

Levitt Bernstein-designed plans to redevelop an 80-house estate in south-east London with a 254-home mix of mews houses, flats and maisonettes have been given the green light by councillors.

Members of Greenwich Council’s planning committee this week approved the practice’s proposals for the Brookhill Estate, which were drawn up for social-housing provider Hyde Group.

Levitt Bernstein’s proposals for the Brookhill Estate in Woolwich, south-east London

Levitt Bernstein said the existing two-storey homes on the estate, which is a few hundred metres from Woolwich town centre, were reaching the end of their lives. The new homes will be delivered in six separate buildings of up to seven storeys in height surrounding a landscaped “green spine”, which also serves as a pedestrian route from east to west.

Levitt Bernstein said a ballot of existing residents of the Brookhill Estate found 86% were in favour of the redevelopment plans.

The regeneration plans will now be referred to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
