1.1 Kidbrooke Vision
‘Our vision for Kidbrooke is to create an exemplary sustainable suburb.
We will replace the brutal Ferrier Estate with a place where people love to
live. This will be a new village for London. Not just housing but a community
with shops and schools, squares and parks, woven among homes for a whole
range of people – young and old, professionals and families - with a complete
mix of tenures. Kidbrooke Village will be famous for offering people a great
quality of life in a beautiful setting close to the heart of a world city.’

2.1.3 Delivering Through Partnership
2009-2014 Berkeley Homes entered into a development
Agreement with the then London Borough of Greenwich
for the 109 ha Kidbrooke site
Planning consent for 4,000 homes was secured in
2009 and construction started later that year, with
the first homes completed in 2010
Support and investment from Regional Partners such
as Southern Housing, ASRA and Viridian has been
fundamental to securing grants and ensuring
continued development
The first stage of the Kidbrooke Regeneration involved
the decant of Residents of the Ferrier Estate
Infrastructure is key to the regeneration and development
of Kidbrooke, in 2013 Cator Park was created, this
provides the ‘major’ green spine, throughout the
development creating open spaces for residents and
those in the local area to enjoy
To date a large number of affordable homes have been
delivered to ensure former Ferrier Residents who wished
to remain in the area were able to do so
To date over 7,500 jobs* have been created throughout
the construction of the Scheme and Berkeley work
closely with GLLaB to deliver local jobs
A construction skills centre has now been built
at Kidbrooke to ensure training and education
*figures based on 5.6 EY Report figures for Berkeley Group and 1,300 construction starts.

2.1.4 Infrastructure
A total of £143m is required for infrastructure across the
Kidbrooke Development.
While initial funding was received for infrastructure Berkeley’s
have significantly invested in Kidbrooke to cover the ‘gap’.
Demolition
Transport and road network
- Berkeley’s have created a number of green routes
across the site into the neighbouring areas
- Creation of cycle ways connecting into the wider
London Cycle Network
- Kidbrooke Park road infrastructure improvements
- All of the Former Ferrier Estate has now
been demolished
- This created 14 acres of Brownfield land for
redevelopment and the creation of Cator Park
Investment into Green infrastructure
- Significant new green routes and parks across
the development have been created
- New paths, trees and parkland have been installed
as a temporary measure to ensure a quality
landscape throughout the whole build process
18
Station
- As part of the delivery of Kidbrooke Village, Berkeley
will also be delivering a new Station facility to Kidbrooke.
An interim station opened in October 2014 in advanceof
the new station facility
Bus Links
- As part of the ongoing delivery of Kidbrooke, Berkeley
have worked with TFL and RBG to ensure the route of the
B16 serves both sides of the development
B16 Bus
The reinstated B16 bus route now serves both sides
of the development. The summer months have seen
Berkeley Homes working with Transport for London
(TfL) and the Royal Borough of Greenwich on a number
of road improvements to accommodate the new route,
including new stops at Moorhead Way. The service will
allow bus users to have easy access to the Village Centre
at Kidbrooke, which includes a Sainsbury’s, doctors’
surgery, dentist and pharmacy.
The amended route from September will run four times
an hour between Kidbrooke rail station and Bexleyheath.
After serving Moorehead Way, the B16 will travel along
Tudway Road to the junction with Elford Close, via a
new lay-by near to the southern entrance of Kidbrooke
station, rather than stopping at Henley Cross.
19
Interim Station
From late October, Southeastern will be operating from a
temporary station building at Kidbrooke, east of the existing
location, this has been provided through collaboration with
Berkeley Homes.
This is in preparation for the construction of a larger,
improved station due to open in 2018.
Opposite the doctors’ surgery and Sainsbury’s Local based on
Tudway Road, the interim station will include a fully accessible
temporary station building and a new platform entrance.
There will be no disruption to
the service while
construction takes place.
Construction on the permanent
railway station will begin in
March 2015 as part of
Berkeley Homes’ proposals for
the Village Centre at Kidbrooke.

2.1.6 Social Sustainabilty
In January 2013, Berkeley commissioned a social
sustainability assessment of Kidbrooke Village to understand
what life is like for the first residents and how to support the
community as it starts to form.
The findings show that a strong sense of community is already
beginning to emerge.
The Social sustainability rating
Kidbrooke Village performed well against the 13 criteria.
10 of the indicators received a positive rating
(in line with the data for comparable places)
91% of people said they feel like they belong, compared
to an average of 62% across London; and
2 of the criteria were rated as satisfactory
(in line with the data for comparable places)
93% say they intend to remain in the neighbourhood,
compared to 68% across the UK.
Only one was red
Berkeley’s methodology for social sustainability assessments
is now publicly available and should be applied to any
regeneration programme in the UK.
All of the feedback is being
used to inform our future
work programme, and we
intend to commission a
follow up assessment in
2 to 3 years and monitor
the progress of Kidbrooke.

Working with the community
Over 70 Year 11 pupils from Lewisham’s Conisborough
College recently spent the day at Kidbrooke Village, as part
of their GCSE studies. The fieldtrip was part of the students’
geography coursework, in which the pupils are investigating
how to create sustainable residential communities in areas of
the country where there is a housing crisis.
During the visit, pupils were taken on a tour of Kidbrooke
Village and inspected some of the homes on the site. They
studied the history and evolution of the site and examined
what sustainability meant on both a large and a smaller scale
for the residential community. Students also explored the
importance of reduced car ownership and how the needs
of the elderly and disabled had been incorporated into
the scheme.

2.1.7 An Interim Hub
Due to the long term nature of the project Berkeley Homes has
recognised the importance of providing a temporary interim
hub to ensure that residents and the community have the
sufficient facilities needed to live, work and play at Kidbrooke.
This was key to ensuring we could deliver a successful place
where people wanted to live.
This provides residents with:
- Sainsbury’s (Opened December 2012)
- Coffee shop
- PCT
- Dentist
- Pharmacy
- Information Centre
- Surgery
- Village Shop
The creation of the interim hub, ensures that the existing
healthcare providers were relocated from the estate.
The interim hub has an estimated 10 – 15 year lifespan.
A new construction skills centre has been built to ensure
education and training.
26
The Kidbrooke Village Fête
Over 500 people turned out in the sunshine
to enjoy the second annual Kidbrooke Village
Fête and all the music, stalls, games and
rides on offer.
The fête was opened by the Mayor of the
Royal London Borough of Greenwich,
Councillor Mick Hayes, accompanied by
the Mayoress, Mrs Gillian Hayes. The two
cut the ribbon at the entrance to the event
before chatting to local families, visitors
and members of the community.
This year’s event, which took place at the
Kidbrooke Village Centre and OneSpace
community centre, also featured a brand
new farmers’ market.

Construction Skills Centre
A brand new skills centre for Royal Borough
residents to train in Construction Skills opened
in Kidbrooke. The new Royal Borough of
Greenwich Construction Skills Centre is the
fourth such specialist skills centre to open
in the Borough, as part of an initiative by
the Council to provide new opportunities
for residents to access training and work
in sectors with excellent job prospects.
25 trainees started in September, learning a
wide range of skills, from laying paving to street
repairs. The Construction Skills Centre will
deliver flexible training for entry level jobs in the
Construction sector. It includes two classrooms
and will deliver specific training courses, both
theory and practical, in a wide range of skills
relevant to the Construction industry, such as
kerb laying, drain laying, asbestos awareness
and traffic marshalling. Like the other buildings
in the interim village centre, it’s a temporary
building that can be moved from site to site.
29
Apprenticeship Scheme
The official launch of the ‘Berkeley
Apprenticeship Scheme’ will take place on
13 November 2014 at Woolwich Town Hall.

Forthcoming Planning Applications
As part of the continual development of
Kidbrooke and our long term commitment to
Regeneration, we have been reviewing the next
phases of the Kidbrooke development. The final
plans for the detailed design of the remaining
phased have now been submitted.
The proposals have been subject to extensive
consultation, with the most recent feedback in
July leading to a number of further modifications,
including a significant reduction in the heights of
various buildings.
As part of our commitment to keep the community
informed of the plans Information boards and
a model of the submitted proposals will be on
display at the Kidbrooke Information Centre.
45
Phase 3: Kidbrooke Village Centre
We are progressing plans for a new Kidbrooke Village Centre.
The proposals will feature a landmark building as a focal
point for Kidbrooke Village.
The plans aim to bring new local shops, community and
healthcare facilities in a vibrant village square creating a
focus for the Village.
A new modern train station will also be delivered,
opening up onto a landscaped square.
