Information about this scheme

The original Stratford City masterplan was the largest planning application ever submitted in London and represented the ambition to establish a new metropolitan centre in the city. It was the product of extensive consultation and created the vision, framework and process for the transformation of a 73 hectare former rail lands site. From the outset, the guiding principle was of long-term city making, creating connections between the existing town centre and onward to the Lea Valley Park. Off this spine, a series of streets and spaces established linkages into the surrounding areas and focal points for urban districts with varying scales, characteristics and uses. The landscape framework was seen as the underlying basis for the project in recognition that specific needs at this scale would emerge over time and should be allowed to evolve. From meeting short term obligations of hosting the London 2012 Athletes Village, the long term ambitions for the site and wider area determined the mix, scale and type of homes being created, with a strong bias towards family accommodation.
