Plans for Wolvercote Road
We're transforming the area from Abbey Wood station to Southmere Lake with more than 1,500 new homes, shops, cafés, restaurants and vibrant outdoor spaces - all on the doorstep of the new Elizabeth line station.
We’ll be putting the heart back into South Thamesmead with a new village square development and a revitalised Lakeside Centre - together forming a bustling hub for residents and visitors, offering shops, creative spaces and stalls.
And the neighbouring areas are also undergoing a transformation - we’re improving parks, creating brighter walkways and making nicer spaces between homes so residents can feel safer, mix and mingle and get to know each other.
