The Aberfeldy Estate in East London is bounded by the A12 and A13 roads which separate the estate from the rest of Poplar and Blackwall to the south and west. Our original masterplan, which gained outline approval in 2012, set out a new urban village of 1,176 new homes, together with a community centre, nursery, shops, GP practice, and a significant linear park. The success of this masterplan saw it extended to include an adjoining estate and additional land parcels delivering a further 1,600 homes and a range of new facilities including workspaces.
Working alongside Morris+Company, ZCD Architects and LDA Design, the design process has been built on extensive community engagement using a multitude of methods, including regular themed workshops and events at local schools. Feedback on the design has directly influenced the masterplan, including the phasing, mix of housing, and design of the new park and play facilities. An overwhelmingly positive ballot was returned in 2020 with over 90% turnout and 90% support for the extended masterplan.
Extending our original Aberfeldy masterplan, which has provided 900 new homes, to deliver a further 1,600 homes and a range of new facilities for local people, creating a new neighbourhood woven from its diverse community and rich past.
