Countryside Properties and Hyde Housing Association have submitted a multi-million pound planning application for a mixed-use scheme in Catford, London.

The plans at the 10.5 acre site comprise a redevelopment of the former Catford Greyhoudn stadium to provide 600 homes, 35% of which will be affordable and a further 22% will provide low cost key worker accommodation.

The Ravensbourne River area, which borders the southern end of the site, is also to be completely remodelled to create a new pedestrian square with around 7,500 sq ft of shops and offices including a ‘gateway’ building to a nearby park.

Racing ahead
The project is being carried out in association with English Partnerships which bought the site as part of the London-Wide Initiative - a government-backed scheme to fast-track more affordable homes for key workers throughout London.

Michael Hill, business development director at Countryside Properties, said: ‘It is imperative that the proposals reflect the vision for Catford Town Centre and we believe this is one of the first steps towards achieving this goal.’

Hunters & Partners is architect. Savills is planning adviser.
