With the community’s help, we are still developing our plans, so they best reflect the needs of residents and provide opportunities for future generations. The principles for the project below have been formed on the basis of residents’ feedback and we believe these will push the project in the best direction for residents. We have a number of consultation events planned in the coming weeks and months which will help these to progress even further.
The new civic square will be between the former St James’ church and the White Horse pub (which will be retained). The square will be a space for community uses throughout the year, including market stalls and community events. A new civic hub on the square will be built which can host a wide range of community activities.
A new north-south route through the estate will link it to Silver Street Station, providing views through to the new park at the centre of the estate. Our Transport team is working with TfL to introduce a pedestrian crossing at the end of College close to marketing getting across Sterling Way safer.
The shops that border the estate will be redeveloped so the high street can be improved. Through the GLA Good Growth Fund the Council will deliver a new ‘urban room’ at Fore Street Library, the conversion of the garages opposite Regan House to provide affordable workspaces temporarily while the regeneration is underway and public realm improvements.
