31 was always going to be a negotiating tactic.

Apparently some sort of back-room understanding has been reached that the tower will be 25 stories. I expect it to sail through on the grounds that they "responded to consultation". Of course, if they'd wanted 31 stories they would have asked for 40.

The point remains: as things stand, transport links are insufficient for this density.

That's all folks. Need to go find the masterplan to see what I've missed and what's still to be built.

Whoever the landscape architects are here, they need to be employed on more projects - the park in the Blackheath Quarter bit was brilliant and you really did see wildlife around - for instance I saw two crows either fishing or trying to get some other food from a small pond.

I called Viridian Housing today and they said that they expect to start sending out more information in August/September, with occupation beginning in the 2015 (i think beginning of the year). Also, she said that there are going to be 24 1bed, 31 2bed flats for Shared Ownership this time (didnt ask about 3 beds).

But please share any info you find about Shared Ownership in Kidbrooke village, thanks!

Great set of photos. From the looks of it, you took a good walk!

Agree with the comment on landscaping. That park (Cator Park) and the rest will be quite something when it's actually complete.

As Kidrooke Village final plans are submitted to Greenwich Council developer say additional 4,000 jobs to be made available
News Shopper
5 October 2014
Quote:
More than 4,000 new jobs will be made available in Greenwich following the submission of the final plans of Kidbrooke Village to Greenwich Council last week.

The final phases of the detailed village plans comprise an additional 782 new homes and will add a further 4,374 jobs to the 12,400 opportunities already created by the village over the past five years.

Developer Berkley Homes have assured that the project will also mean a number of new amenities for the Kidbrooke community including coffee shops, 23 acres of new parkland, permanent space for Sainsbury’s Local supermarket, reintroduction of buses to the village centre, children’s play areas and the planting of more than 1,000 new trees.

The major £1 billion development, in partnership with the Greater London Authority, Greenwich Council and the Kidbrooke community will also see a new, larger Wingfield Primary School which will be delivered six years earlier than planned.

Kidbrooke resident Matheus Gehring said: “We’ve only been living in Kidbrooke for a few weeks but it’s been fantastic – we already feel like part of the community. Everyone is very friendly and relaxed – there are always people in Sutcliffe Park and enjoying the other green spaces, and nobody feels too rushed.

"It’s so family friendly, and everyone chats to each other as they walk around the village. We’ve all been talking about how excited we are to be here. We’re really looking forward to being here as the development grows and more people arrive.”

Coupled with an improved bus interchange, reinstated B16 route and new pedestrian and cycle routes Berkeley Homes is investing over £5 million in local transport facilities in the borough including a new railway station for Kidbrooke, which will be in place by 2017.

Karl Whiteman, divisional managing director of Berkeley Homes, said: “The submission of the final phases takes us a major step closer to completing south-east London’s newest and most affordable village, generating over 4,000 jobs to add to the 12,400 opportunities already created at Kidbrooke.

“We’d like to thank the local community, council and everyone who participated in the July consultation and really helped us to shape the final plans which will extend the growing community we have at Kidbrooke Village. Greenwich is thriving and ever-changing, and it’s a very exciting time to play a part in its evolution.”

Work is planned to begin in early 2015 if plans are approved.

Yes, I know, and I read it all. I was just wondering for any "insider" information, new future plans and etc.

But thanks for all the updates!

Ah right!

I'll post the future plans on the next page

I would have done so already, but I didn't want to overload this page with images.

"High-rise blocks returning to Kidbrooke Village with £1bn Berkeley Homes estate set to include a 25-storey tower."

So will this 25 storey building be accepted in the council?

Total lack of ANY usable storage space in those bedrooms once you have a bed in there. Amazing how developers get away with this.

There's something in the corridor that *might* be a built in wardrobe, the video doesn't look into it, but the bedrooms are small. No space for a desk or wardrobe or chest of drawers. You even see this in two bed and two bath apartments, and I can't help but think that one of the two bathrooms on those will end up as a storage place.
