Planning approved for the Ledbury Estate!

14 Jun 2022

Delighted to announce that the Ledbury Estate in Peckham, south-east London has achieved planning! Created for Southwark Council, our proposals to re-envision the 1960s estate will re-provide 224 council homes for existing residents with an additional 116 mixed-tenure homes, alongside a new community (TRA) hall, commercial spaces and a green and playable landscape and public realm.

The renewal by Southwark Council was decided upon following concerns raised in 2017 by residents regarding fire safety and the structural integrity of the four existing tower blocks on the estate. Having evaluated options for the retention and replacement of buildings, residents voted via ballot in 2021 for renewal to take place. Our masterplan proposals are the outcome of sustained engagement and co-design with the estate community who have been directly involved in the design process to steer decisions on all aspects of the scheme. Work is planned to begin on-site later this year.
