Stroudley Walk gets the nod for 51% new affordable homes


Poplar HARCA and Muse Developments have been granted planning permission to redevelop Stroudley Walk, in Bromley-by-Bow, by London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

This milestone moment for the borough will deliver 274 new family homes, with 82 homes for London affordable rent, and 33 for shared ownership. The development will in total provide 51% affordable housing, by the number of habitable rooms.

Stroudley Walk, located between Bruce Road and Bromley High Street, has been described as ‘the most overdue redevelopment in the borough’.

The approved plans focus on creating a safe and thriving, vibrant neighbourhood, and include a new pocket park and part-pedestrianised street, with business and retail.

500 local people gave feedback on ideas for the development and had significant influence on the final planning application.

A resident said:

“This area is really lacking a proper high street with good amenities. It would be lovely if Stroudley Walk could develop more of a local community.”

Paul Dooley, director of development and regeneration at Poplar HARCA, said:

“The changes brought about through the redevelopment of Stroudley Walk will transform this unique and somewhat forgotten part of Bromley-by-Bow.

We look forward to making a big, positive difference to many local families’ lives by building new, affordable homes and creating safe and welcoming community space in this very special part of east London.”

Rebecca Lewis, senior development manager at Muse Developments, said:

“Our development at Stroudley Walk with Poplar HARCA, provides a real opportunity for us to provide much-needed affordable homes coupled with extensive public realm upgrades, to create a diverse and safe place for all.

“Poplar is an area steeped in history, but with clear aspirations for the future and we’re working hard with our partners to bring the two together to deliver a scheme that not only repurposes the area to create a positive legacy, but also drives growth, opportunities and prosperity right into the heart of the community.”

With RM_A Architects leading on the design, the redevelopment is expected to start on site in 2022 and the new homes ready for families to move into, in late 2024.
