Plans have been submitted for 443 new homes as part of the scheme to demolish and rebuild Heathside and Lethbridge estates in Lewisham.
This latest stage – comprising Phase Five and Six – is the final section to be built. It started as a Family Mosaic scheme but Peabody are now in charge after merging with the group.
- Phase 1 saw 138 homes were built between August 2010 and October 2012.
- Phase 2 saw 190 homes constructed between January 2011 and April 2013.
- Phase 3 has just finished and saw 218 homes built between August 2013 and December 2017.
- Phase 4 includes 236 new homes.
The site is a short stroll to Lewisham station. Peabody hope to complete the first homes on this final section by 2020-21. No new DLR trains are due until 2022/23 at the earliest and Southeastern – well, who knows?
How well these corridors can cope with more passengers remains to be seen:
A one-way system has recently been introduced at the station to mitigate growing passenger numbers.
This is far from the only large development in close proximity to Lewisham town centre. Scaffolding is now being applied to the former Carpetright store for demolition and a tower with 250 homes.
A cinema and 530 homes was recently approved in front of the station. And finally, Legal and General have plans for 550 homes on the site of Sports Direct.
