Plans for a major regeneration project in one of the largest development areas in Plumstead are to be put to the public.

Berkeley Homes and Peabody are proposing to build more than 1,700 homes and workspaces in an empty plot of land north of Plumstead station.

The homes would be in buildings between eight and 11 storeys tall – but one “gateway” block could tower as high as 24 storeys.

The developers claim they will “revitalise the disused former industrial land” with, pathways and cycle routes connecting Plumstead with Thamesmead and Woolwich.

The proposals include 1,700 homes, 35 per cent of which would be earmarked as affordable.

Earlier plans in 2016 had earmarked the site for just 900 homes.

It is proposed there will be about 425 parking spaces included in the plans, which will be on display to residents from this week.

Views can be given here.

The plans will be on display tomorrow (October 16)  from 4pm until 8pm at the Plumstead Radical Club, Walmar Terrace and then again on Thursday (October 18) from 4-8 at the Broadwater Green Village Hall, 1c Goosander Way.

Following feedback, Peabody and Berkeley aim to submit an application before Christmas, and would start building by the end of next year if given the green light.
