London mayor reveals plans for 26,500 new homes along the Thames

Berkeley Square Capital (LONDON) Ltd state that a blueprint for creating thousands of new homes along the River Thames has been published by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.

The draft London Riverside Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF) sets out the planning, regeneration and design guidance that will lead to the creation of 26,500 new homes and up to 16,000 jobs across the capital.

The Mayor has identified 38 Opportunity Areas across the capital. Opportunity Areas are London’s major source of brownfield land with significant capacity for new housing, commercial and other development linked to existing or potential improvements to public transport accessibility.

By establishing Opportunity Areas, and working closely with London boroughs and partner agencies, the Mayor will be best able to deliver significant social and economic regeneration.
The London Riverside Opportunity Area stretches from the Royal Docks to Rainham Marshes, a total distance of 12 kilometres.
