Together with our partners at the London Borough of Bexley, Royal Borough of Greenwich, Greater London Authority and Transport for London, we are driving forward the regeneration of Thamesmead.

We are well-placed to deliver the regeneration. As one of London’s oldest housing associations, we are putting our 150 years of experience into making a lasting contribution to the cultural, physical, environmental and economic wellbeing of Thamesmead.



Over £1 billion is being invested in the town, making Thamesmead not only the biggest regeneration project in London but one of the biggest in the UK. Almost 50 years after the first residents moved to London’s new town, Thamesmead's full potential can now be realised.

As new developments and transport links arrive in Thamesmead they will bring with them new shops, leisure facilities and jobs that a thriving town needs.

How is Thamesmead changing?

Peabody has a 30-year plan for Thamesmead to realise its potential.

We are investing in the area by:

  • repairing existing homes
  • improving public spaces
  • building new homes
  • looking after the parks and waterways
  • growing cultural activities and supporting the community.

 

Who is involved?
We have appointed an independent team led by Arup, The Social Innovation Partnership and the University of Greenwich to understand and evaluate the impact of the changes to the area.

Your views are essential
Through the research, we would like to hear about your experience of living in Thamesmead, what concerns you have, what you would like to see improve and how you have found the changes that we've made.


What happens next?
Arup will be using your feedback along with other data to build a picture of how Thamesmead is changing. The information will be used to help us shape our future plans and will be shared with you every year through an exhibition and feedback sessions.

You can get involved by filling in a survey, attending a focus group, speaking to one of the researchers who will be out and about in Thamesmead or if you're an organisation you can arrange a face-to-face interview.
