Berkeley Homes has gained planning consent for the £1bn redevelopment of one of London’s most deprived housing estates.

Greenwich Council has granted consent to Berkeley Homes’ and Southern Housing’s Kidbrooke masterplan for the Ferrier Estate, the council estate immortalised in Gary Oldman’s gritty biopic Nil By Mouth.

The partnership was given outline planning permission to develop 4,000 residential units at the 2,000 apartments estate and neighbouring Harrow Green sports areas.

The plans, revealed by Property Week last year, include 30,000 sq ft of leisure facilities, 60,000 sq ft of offices, 34,000 sq ft of shops and a 64,000 sq ft hotel.

The plans will now be referred to the Mayor of London’s office.
