CMA were pleased to have secured unanimous approval at London Borough of Southwark's Planning Committee this week for the redevelopment of the Ledbury Estate on the Old Kent Road for the Borough.  This Karakusevic Carson Architects designed scheme will provide 340 new homes, 76% of which will be affordable, along with new commercial space and a TRA Hall in four buildings reaching up to 22 storeys in height. 

The redevelopment of the Estate, which was built in the 1960s, has been done in consultation with existing residents, with a ballot showing 86% in support of the plans.  This as a result of a collaborative effort between Southwark Council, the wider design and consultant team, Calford Seaden, Open Communities and particularly the Ledbury Resident Project Group, which has been fully involved and engaged throughout the design process.  Work is due to start on site later this year.
