Your new home

We already have planning permission to build around 1,600 new homes in South Thamesmead. We’re currently building 130 homes in phase 1 at Southmere, which is very close to Lesnes Estate.

We’re designing and building homes with:

A high quality finish

Energy efficiency

Sound insulation

Storage

Space

Outdoor space

We’ll work with you to identify a new home that meets your needs. And you’ll only need to move once to a home close to where you currently live. This reduces the disruption to your and your family’s lives.

Along with the new homes, we’re also building a new library and a public square with landscaped gardens and water fountains. It will be a lovely place for people to meet, with beautiful gardens and outdoor seating dotted around the square. Restaurants and shops will border the square creating amenities and services right outside your new home. There will also be new facilities a short walk away such as the nursery at the Lakeside Centre and a new boating club. We’re also improving and cleaning the lake to create more wildlife habitats as well as an enjoyable outdoor space for the community.

Comparing your current home to our new homes

We will be working with you to understand your housing needs and to make sure your new home meets them. If your needs are the same, and you require the same number of bedrooms as your current home, the room sizes in your new home will be similar to your current home.

Please see examples of layouts and spaces of your current home compared to our new homes.
