On an 81% turnout, 86% of residents backed proposals for regenerating the Teviot Estate with new homes, new green and play spaces, shops, community and faith facilities, and improved infrastructure.
Resident ballots for strategic estate regeneration projects that require City Hall funding were introduced by the Mayor of London in July 2018. An independent ballot of 617 eligible residents was conducted by Electoral Reform Services.
Since the ballot, consultation with the Residents’ Steering Group and the local community has been ongoing, with residents contributing to the scheme’s procurement and designs.
Features of the scheme could include:
- More than 2,500 new homes (a mix of flats, maisonettes and houses to meet Teviot residents’ housing need)
- New green and play spaces
- New shops
- Community and faith facilities
- Improved infrastructure
Poplar HARCA has appointed Housebuilder of the Year, Hill as joint venture partner to deliver the Teviot Estate regeneration. A planning application to the local authority is expected to be finalised in mid-late 2022.Read the full Offer document Teviot News June 2020 Teviot News November 2020
