Developers were granted planning permission from the London Borough of Bexley yesterday to transform two hectares of public realm in Thamesmead.

The first phase of the project by Peabody, which is expected to be onsite early next year, will concentrate on Portmeadow Walk in Southmere and Mangold Way and Redpoll Way in Parkview.

Usable outdoor spaces for people will be created with new seating, colourful planting, improved pathway lighting and attractive landscaped gardens.

“This is the first phase of our South Thamesmead public realm project and we’re so pleased to see it moving ahead,” said Dr Phil Askew, director landscape and placemaking at Peabody.

“Our plans are going to improve the walkways and green spaces with new planting that will encourage biodiversity and nectar feeding insects as well as introduce colour.

“We have had really positive feedback from our public realm trials which we’ve fed into our final plan.”

Deputy leader and cabinet member for growth, cllr Louie French, said: “This is more good news for Thamesmead and regeneration in the borough.

“It is a great scheme that will make a really positive difference to the look and feel of the area for local people once it is complete.”
