£80m Boost for Thamesmead
Two new housing zones worth more than £80m have been announced for Thamesmead, creating thousands of new homes and jobs and improving the local environment.
Count on Thamesmead is the only area growth company working specifically for Thamesmead as well as we utilize our income to supply direct solutions and to deal with others to improve the top quality of the lives of the 30,000 plus citizens of Thamesmead, focusing on the most deprived.
Our charitable objectives are concentrated on progressing education and learning, improving health, obtaining even more people back into job, reinforcing the abilities of regional citizens as well as established much better social networks and neighborhood framework.
In 2014, Trust fund Thamesmead joined Gallions and also Tilfen Land in becoming part of the Peabody Group. This means housing, neighborhood financial investment and over 100 acres of developable land in Thamesmead are currently owned by a solitary, well-resourced organisation for the very first time in a generation. Peabody has actually committed an initial ₤ 225m to the regrowth of Thamesmead. Together with various other financing, this has pressed Thamesmead into the top 50 regeneration tasks in the UK.
In February 2015, the Greater London Authority announced their support for two significant housing zones in Thamesmead with a proposed ₤ 80m investment. The areas which fall in both the London District of Bexley and Royal Borough of Greenwich, will certainly deliver virtually 3,000 brand-new residences to lease and buy, produce countless jobs and improve the regional environment. This will sustain Peabody’s investment and function as a driver for further regrowth.
