Tenure blind on a big scale in Bexley


Work on a major regeneration scheme is drawing to a close in a deprived south east London suburb. Paul Nicholls of Wates Residential explains its community-driven approach to this ‘tenure blind’ project. Jack Wooler reports.


Developed by Orbit Group in partnership with Wates Residential, the project is a collection of 587 homes, comprising afford- able rent, shared ownership, and private sale. With just the final two homes to complete, the development houses around 2,000 people. Transforming the former Larner Road


E


estate, the scheme is professed to be community-focused, encouraging social cohesion, inclusivity and social diversity. The project includes the transfer of many of the scheme’s original residents who chose to be rehoused in the new scheme, as well as a large amount of new housing. Broadway Malyan were appointed as architects and master planners on the scheme, with Clarkebond as structural engineers, and Turley Associates as planning consultants. A number of public sector organisations, such as the local planning authority the London Borough of Bexley, were also involved in the project, with the project including funding from both the GLA and MHCLG (English Partnerships).


GETTING STARTED


THE TEAM HAS “AMBITIOUS PLANS FOR THE AREA, SEEKING TO TRANSFORM THE NEIGHBOURHOOD FROM ONE OF THE LEAST POPULAR IN ERITH, TO THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER”

Larner Road was formerly a local authority- owned high rise estate, in what has been described as a deprived neighbourhood. Paul Nicholls, managing director of Wates Residential, explained to Housebuilder and Developer: “With a failing infrastructure and 1960s buildings, the area had become synonymous with poor accommodation, lack of family amenities, and a wide spectrum of social issues. In turn, the area had a poor reputation, and was suffering from low demand.”


Orbit took ownership of the homes on the estate in 1997, following their transfer from the London Borough of Bexley. Following extensive consultation with local residents on options for regeneration, Wates was appointed by Orbit as regeneration partner through the then Homes and Communities Agency’s Delivery Partner
