    Orbit has proposed a new scheme to redevelop Arthur Street estate, in London, 24 Housing, reports.

    Wates Residential will help to deliver Orbit’s proposed £73m regeneration of an estate in London, after their success with making Larner Road an award winning, 40,000-home, Erith Park, Bexley.

    Within the next few months, Orbit and Wates Residential will consult with the local community prior to submitting a planning application to London Borough of Bexley in summer 2018.

    Arthur Street estate which has many failed components and blocks no longer meeting modern standards was built in the late 1960’s with the following:

    • 13 storey tower blocks
    • Some low rise blocks with 263 one and two-bed flats 
    • Some three-bed maisonettes

    The proposed new scheme will consist of:

    • 280 new homes with 80% for affordable rent and shared ownership
    • Associated parking and public open space
    • The design process and build will be managed by Wates
    • Orbit plans for the regeneration to benefit from more than £10m awarded through the government’s Estate Regeneration Fund and the Greater London Authority’s Affordable Homes Programme

    The development director at Orbit, Maggie McCann, said:

    “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Wates.

    “We want the Arthur Street estate to be a great place to live now and for future generations.”
