South Thamesmead includes the very first homes delivered as part of the original great London masterplan and today thousands of people call the area their home.
There is a lot to love about South Thamesmead and as part of our regeneration strategy, we have an opportunity to build up to three thousand homes in South Thamesmead, as well as new services, amenities, and jobs. In the wider Thamesmead area, we are looking to create a further 18,500 new homes and new leisure, cultural and commercial facilities.
The Elizabeth line will start running from Abbey Wood and there are plans to expand the DLR too. This means that Thamesmead will soon be very well connected to the city and west end. But it will retain its own unique culture and remain a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of central London.
