Broadway Malyan masterplan for £100m regeneration scheme wins approval

Multidisciplinary practice Broadway Malyan is gearing up to roll out the masterplan for a £100m mixed-use scheme after winning over planners just before Christmas.

London Borough of Bexley approved plans to transform a high-rise estate in Erith into a low-rise settlement surrounded by soft landscape and plazas, detail designed by Broadway Malyan landscape architects and building professionals.

Director Geoff Brocklehurst said: "The planning green light is a major milestone in the creation of a neighbourhood that will be safe, permeable and legible. Open green space, including the Dell nature area, will be improved."

Seven tower blocks will be torn down and replaced with around 620 low-rise homes in the £100m regeneration project. First phase is for 66 homes and landscape, due to be ready in early 2015.

The planning decision is subject to approval by the Greater London Authority, which is part funding the project, one of the largest of its kind in London. Bexley Council, Wates Living Space and Orbit are working with Broadway Malyan.
