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 1,450 new homes have been delivered including 667 affordable homes, 170 of which are specifically designed for older people. These sit alongside the new Cator Park, interim Village Centre, village squares and retail space. 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 many things, 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.
Keeping fi t and healthy is all part of the sustainable lifestyle offered at Kidbrooke Village. As well as outdoor sport in the parks, you can keep in shape by working out in the residents-only gym located in the Village Centre.
The Village Centre also has its own 24 hour Concierge service, situated within the retail hub. A Concierge is widely regarded as an essential asset for busy Londoners, and will assist with home deliveries, greeting visitors, making reservations or travel arrangements on your behalf.
The Kidbrooke Village Zipcar car share club is also accessible within the Village Centre, providing economical car hire and dispensing with the expense personal car ownership.

newly created Cator Park.
Meridian Gate was the next neighbourhood to be added to the village, comprising stylish apartments and houses centrally located between Sutcliffe Park and Cator Park.
Kidbrooke Village Centre is the latest phase of Kidbrooke Village. It is at the very heart of the development and offers a collection of 1, 2 and 3

A TOTAL OF 136 ACRES OF PARKLAND MAKES KIDROOKE VILLAGE AN OASIS OF GREEN IN THE CITY.
If easy access to green open spaces is on your agenda, then Kidbrooke Village is a place where you will fl ourish. In total, the village has 136 acres of open space, made up from the established Sutcliffe Park, the newly created Cator Park, and numerous green spots and green links between the buildings.
Cator Park features stunning landscaping and water features, forming a green river through the village, connecting all the neighbourhoods. It leads into
long established Sutcliffe Park, which has Green Flag status and is a noted local nature reserve.
Kidbrooke Village Centre is where everyone gravitates to for convenient shopping and other local facilities. On-site amenities include a supermarket, coffee shop, dentist, doctor, and pharmacy. More shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and the piazza will be delivered over the coming years.
Convenient transport links are also a key feature of Kidbrooke Village. Kidbrooke station* is being completely rebuilt and forms an integral part of the

Woolwich and Lewisham respectively which further enhances transport at Kidbrooke Village.
