The Opportunity

The site provides a unique opportunity to enable a sustainable new neighbourhood:

  • Opening up an inaccessible piece of despoiled land to create a c.20 acre park, open to the whole community 
  • Creating green links and cycle ways into the surrounding local communities and countryside to make the park accessible to all 
  • Consolidating and improving the existing sports facilities and providing new and upgraded local amenities
  • Creating a range of new homes and workspaces in mid-rise mansion blocks edging the park, building in the great tradition of the best London parks
  • Delivering a new local centre with a primary school to complement the shops on the Hook Road
  • Improving the Hook roundabout and local access to alleviate rat-running in the local area
  • Providing a network of local public transportation links to give easy access to local bus and rail services 
  • Delivering a pioneering green community, with renewable, low-cost heating, potential for zero carbon homes, and significant net gain in biodiversity across the site
