About Aylesbury Estate, Southwark
We were selected as the development partner in January 2014. Following our selection we entered into the Development Partnership Agreement (DPA) with the Council in April and only eight months later, following 17 public pre-planning consultation meetings, we submitted a detailed planning application for 830 homes on the first development site, an environmental impact assessment and outline application for the masterplan which was subsequently approved in April 2015.
Demolition for the first phase of new homes began in 2017. We started construction on the site known as the ‘First Development Site’ on Albany Road in 2019. In 2020 we started construction on the site known as ‘Plot 18’ on Thurlow Street. Plot 18 will be a new neighbourhood hub and features a library, health centre and public square, as well as new homes. We anticipate the first new homes to be completed in 2021.
We are also offering an extensive programme of community development. This includes training, apprenticeships and job opportunities. We are supporting unemployed Southwark residents in jobs across a range of fields and at a variety of entry levels. We are committed to pay the London Living Wage throughout the supply chain to the Aylesbury regeneration.
