A2Dominion and Rydon have secured planning permission for phase two of the Green Man Lane development, which has been designed by Conran & Partners, shopkeeper Sir Terence Conran’s urban design practice.
This phase of the scheme includes a range apartments, maisonettes and houses.
Work will also start on a new community walkway, link south and north of the development with the local neighbourhood.
Demolition work is scheduled to start in April 2014, with construction to get under way in August 2014 and taking around two years to complete.
A2Dominion regeneration director David Price said: “This planning consent signals a new major milestone in the development of the Green Man Lane estate. With the first phase nearing completion, the regeneration project is already beginning to transform this run-down 1970s estate and we look forward to progressing with this exciting next stage to deliver even more high quality homes.”
In total, the Green Man Lane regeneration involves construction of more than 700 homes across four phases, along with local shops and play areas.
Phase one of the regeneration, which is nearing completion, includes 176 homes and is set to be finished in early 2014.
The third phase of the regeneration is scheduled to start in early 2017, subject to securing reserved matters planning approval against the consented masterplan.
The new affordable homes from phase one at Green Man Lane are being delivered to provide new accommodation for those people who have been living in the blocks set for demolition in phase two.
