Housing and Development in London

Plumstead, Thamesmead

Plans for homes near Plumstead station doubled to 1,800

Berkeley Homes and Peabody plan to build 1,800 homes on a site 250 metres from Plumstead station under latest proposals which also include a 22-storey tower.

Original plan



The site lay empty for years as Peabody glacially moved forward, as is their norm, with a 900-home scheme. The scheme was originally announced as part of the Greenwich borough Housing Zone in 2015, and located beside Plumstead bus garage and Belmarsh Prison.

Three years on and no planning application has yet been submitted.

The just-submitted Environment Impact Assessment states “It is understood that this scheme was taken through the formal pre-application process with both RBG and the GLA, including a review by Cabe under the Greenwich Design Review Panel, but was subsequently put on hold”.

Last December it was announced Peabody had partnered Berkeley Homes to create 1,500 homes at “West Thamesmead Gateway”.

Now the latest EIA (Ref: 18/1555/EIA) has been submitted which seeks to boost numbers further to 1,800 homes.

As I’ve written before, it would be no surprise to see new homes lining Plumstead road from the bus station down to Woolwich’s Crossrail station in coming years, with industry displaced west to Thamesmead.

Further consultation is expected in coming months.

    This area around Plumstead Station is in need of some redevelopment and regeneration. I am hoping the new housing development will breath some new life in to the area. I also hope it will help to reduce some of the crime and anti social behaviour around Plumstead Station we have seen of late.
