THE estate immortalised by Stanley Kubrick's cult film A Clockwork Orange is due to be redeveloped.

Thamesmead's Tavy Bridge Estate, used by Kubrick in 1971 to portray Britain's bleak, dystopian future is set to undergo 'phase two' of its redevelopment programme, this month.

Bellway Homes and Gallions Housing Association are to build 220 homes with 43 per cent affordable housing, following a successful planning application by Savills, last month.

Kieran Wheeler, Director of Planning at Savills, said: "The proposed scheme will deliver a high quality development, which will provide a significant benefit to Tavy Bridge and act as a catalyst for the subsequent phases of development and regeneration of the estate."

The plan to regenerate the estate by building 827 new units and health and other community facilities was granted in December 2007.
