Redbridge Council gives green light to ‘Tesco town’

Collaboration between supermarket firm and housebuilder to provide urban village in east London

Housebuilder Weston Homes and supermarket firm Tesco have obtained a resolution to grant planning permission for their joint plans for a 1,280-home project in Goodmayes.

They secured the go-ahead from Redbridge council to transform an existing Tesco store and car park into a new community called Lorimer Village, which has a gross development value of £ 500m.

The scheme includes a total of 14 towers, rising to 22 storeys, alongside plans for rebuilding the store. It will also include a primary school, a village hall, a landscaped garden and public transport improvements.

The development will also be 100% electric powered, making use of 682 solar PV panels.

The scheme, of which 35% will be affordable housing, was designed by RDA Architects and will take around 8 years to be finished, it’s expected to start in early 2022.
