With EcoWorld London, we’re building more than 1,000 new homes and creating a place that ‘feels like a village’ on the Aberfeldy estate.

We’ve listened to what the established community here wants for the non-residential areas and their community: a friendly, welcoming place for everyone which is clean, safe and secure. This feedback has played a key part in shaping the buildings and places Aberfeldy Village will provide.

  • Over 1,000 new homes: A mix of social rent, shared ownership, private sale and private rent.
  • Health centre: An upgraded health centre – expected to open in 2024.
  • Faith centre: A new faith centre for prayer and reflection.
  • Aberfeldy Meanwhile scheme: Before new retail space can be built, Aberfeldy Street has been given an eye-catching makeover with new shop-fronts, lighting and street art through the Start Here programme. New and existing businesses are also being supported with rent-free periods, grant opportunities and business support to make sure the street remains a vibrant community, social and commercial hub.
  • Retail spaces: The new retail outlets on Aberfeldy Street will eventually include a new grocery store, café, pharmacy and more.
  • Community centre: A new centre the Feldy, double the size of the planning consent requirement, opened in 2023.
  • Green spaces: Courtyards, a linear park creating East India Green, seating areas, trees, plants and water features.
  • Energy efficient: The development’s heating and hot water is provided by a centrally located, on-site energy centre.
  • Safer, sustainable transport routes: Improved links for walking and cycling

Works began on site in 2012, and are taking place over six phases.

Aberfeldy New Masterplan

At a call-in hearing, at City Hall on Friday 26 January, the Deputy Mayor of London gave the go ahead to life-changing Aberfeldy New Masterplan for Aberfeldy.

We can now working with the whole community to make sure regeneration delivers the things that matter most to everyone.

As with all developments of this size and scale, there will now be a period where we begin the next stage of planning, reviewing and checking the design and technical details. This is a detailed process and takes time, so we expect to complete this stage and update you again in the coming months.

We understand you might have questions about what this means for you. We promise to keep you regularly updated on progress and start dates as soon as they are finalised.

Working together with the whole community

The local community have been at the heart of these plans from the start. We want to make sure we continue to answer questions and address any concerns you might have.

Listening to a range of views and opinions is really important to us. There are lots of opportunities available for you to get in touch and new members of the Resident Steering Group (RSG) are welcome at any time.
