Plans have been submitted to change the face of Greenwich Peninsula.

Developers Knight Dragon have submitted proposals for the next phase Greenwich Peninsula, redeveloping a 1.6km stretch of land south of the O2.

This will include over 12,000 new homes, up to 22 serviced apartments, a large hotel, improved public transport for the area and tower blocks of up to 40 storeys high.

In their design and access statement, Knight Dragon state: "The proposed 2015 Masterplan presents a dynamic new vision for the Greenwich Peninsula which promises to deliver one of London's most exciting and sustainable new districts.

"In the future it will generate more jobs and be home to tens of thousands of Londoners."

Knight Dragon have also promised a new world-class film studio, which will host film and TV projects at the highest level.

Six distinctive residential neighbourhoods will be created with a total 12,678 new homes.

However, Knight Dragon have failed to mention how much affordable housing there will be at the site.

Labour parliamentary candidate for Greenwich and Woolwich, Matthew Pennycook, said: "More detail is needed, particularly about the proposed levels of affordable housing across the site, but my view is clear.

"As I've told Knight Dragon repeatedly over recent months I will not support revisions to the Peninsula Masterplan unless they guarantee decent levels of affordable housing, a tenure-blind mix across the entire site and the improvements to local infrastructure and the public realm necessary to sustain an increase in population."

Conservative parliamentary candidate for Greenwich and Woolwich, Matt Hartley, agreed with Mr Pennycook.

He said: "With Knight Dragon wanting to build an extra 5,000 homes, the council should see this as an opportunity to negotiate up the level of affordable housing on the development, the question is whether they will take it."

Knight Dragon submitted planning application for the revised masterplan for Greenwich Peninsula and this is being formally consulted on by Greenwich Council.
