Stratford development sees next phase underway

Demolition work is underway at a site in Stratford which will see 196 homes.

This is the next phase of Legacy Wharf from Bellway Homes located beside Barbers Road and Cooks Road.

Render of completed development

If taking a DLR from Stratford to Lewisham this site can be seen on the left-hand side after departing Pudding Mill Lane station.

Pudding Mill station itself was rebuilt and enlarged with the new structures opening in 2014 but many sites nearby remain undeveloped.

Various plots lie undeveloped in the area

The first phase of Legacy Wharf completed in 2022 and this stage gained the green light in November that year from the London Legacy Development Corporation, who still maintained control of the area instead of Newham Council.

Revenue via Section 106 will see £80,000 spent on cycle hire facilities at the DLR station, while Community Infrastructure Levy income totals £1.4 million. S106 is also going to help fund a replacement footbridge.

The site is also not too far from a temporary arena for the ABBA Voyage show which reached its first anniversary this week.

Vulcan Wharf

Also on Cooks Road lies the Vulcan Wharf development beside the River Lea. Plans for 457 homes there was approved in 2021.



Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
