The mixed-use development will include the delivery of ca. 500 new homes with half being new council homes.

The scheme will also include about 5,000m2 of new commercial space and education facilities.

Beatrix Young, Partner from Weston Williamson + Partners, commented: "We are delighted to be part of this exciting project, building on our long-standing collaboration with Southwark Council and the local residents. As a local Southwark-based practice, we always look for opportunities to support sustainable growth and development within the borough, building on our established links with local schools, business and residents. The council’s tender process allowed us to showcase the inclusive approach we take to developing design teams working with established and new practices and promoting under-represented groups in the profession. We believe that our combined offer, that will focus on high quality, low carbon new homes and unique placemaking, will create an exceptional city-shaping development for the Old Kent Road."
