Located in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Kidbrooke Village is one of London's most significant new housing-led developments; a £1 billion regeneration transforming the area into a new community in partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Mayor of London.
To date, over 1,900 new homes have been delivered including 773 affordable homes, 170 of which are specifically designed for older people. The new homes at Kidbrooke Village are being delivered alongside the new and improved Cator Park, and a variety of commercial and community space offerings. Residents benefit from living in a safe and sustainable modern community in one of London's most desirable boroughs, surrounded by 35 hectares of parkland and open space. The regeneration has already supported over 8,000 jobs including 140 apprentices and works in partnership with Greenwich Local Labour and Business (GLLaB).
Regeneration today is about people, places and communities. It's about ensuring we create sustainable spaces where people want to live and work.
We believe that regeneration is a combination of high quality architecture, public spaces, investment in services, infrastructure, culture and a mixture of tenures and uses in these areas that make them a successful and vibrant place to live.
At Kidbrooke Village, we have the opportunity to bring all these elements together, using our expertise in regeneration in conjunction with the experience and support of our key stakeholders the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the GLA.

History of Kidbrooke
The Kidbrooke site has an historic past as the, highly acclaimed RAF base. Following World War II, the site was marked for Development and became the Ferrier Estate a 1,900 home single tenure estate.
The Estate was built in 1968 by the LCC and was deemed the height of post modern brutalist architecture. However the site soon turned into disrepair in the 1980s, and became a sink estate, it was marked for development by Greenwich Council in 2001. In 2007 Berkeley Homes were selected as preferred development partner and the Kidbrooke Village partnership was born.
