Kidbrooke Village

Bringing sustainable living to London

The Berkeley Group is transforming one of the most economically deprived areas in South-East London into Kidbrooke Village. The 30 year project, in partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, is one of the most ambitious regeneration schemes in Europe. Kidbrook Village
      Once the six-stage development is complete in 2030, it will provide homes for nearly 5,000 people, over 20,000 jobs and boast 35 hectares of open space. Over 1,224 homes have already been delivered along with 229 permanent jobs and 76 apprenticeship roles.
      Creating successful, sustainable communities is at the heart of the Berkeley Group, and Kidbrooke epitomises this. Alongside the new homes there will shops, schools, healthcare facilities and a new train station. But what really sets this development apart from the rest is the investment in the landscape. The value of the scheme is created by the spaces between buildings – not just by the buildings themselves.
      Investment in people is also key to the success of a project. The Construction Skills Centre, which promotes training and education, has been set up on site to support young people entering the industry. Trainee Site Manager Yasar Ugur discussed how the skills centre had turned his life around:
      “Before I joined Berkeley, I was hanging out with people who were in gangs and now I’m learning and developing my skills. I think about my future now and how this job has opened doors for me to construction and the big impact it’s had on my life.”
      The scale, ambition, vision, planning and design of this transformational billion pound regeneration project make Kidbrooke unique . The strong partnership between the Berkeley Group, architects Lifshutz Davidson Sandilands, the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Southern Housing Group, the HCA and TfL all contribute to making this project a huge success.
