8 July 2020 – Application submitted for works to repair river wall

On 22 June 2020, a planning application was submitted to the London Borough of Newham for repairs to a section of the river wall within the Limmo Peninsula site.

The application proposes to replace a section of the existing river wall on the western edge of the site as it has fallen into disrepair. Additional steel sheet piling is proposed to protect existing habitat and planting on the edge of the river. For more details on what the application includes, please see the River Wall Application Information Sheet.

Connected Living London, a partnership between TfL and Grainger plc, long term owner and developer of the Limmo Peninsula site, has submitted the application.

The London Borough of Newham is responsible for statutory consultation of the application which is likely to commence in the coming weeks. During this process, the application details will be made available for the public to view on the London Borough of Newham Planning Portal and can be accessed by searching the reference number 20/01313/FUL. Comments on the planning application should be made directly to the London Borough of Newham to ensure they are formally considered.

The Limmo Peninsula site, adjacent to Canning Town Station, is being redeveloped to provide a residential-led scheme, and your input can help inform what happens next.

Connected Living London, a partnership between Transport for London (TfL) and Grainger plc, will deliver thousands of homes across a number of sites in London, with a high proportion of affordable housing, one of which is Limmo Peninsula.

Limmo Peninsula will deliver a mixed tenure development, including homes to rent and buy, both open market and affordable, as well as elements of commercial space.


Connected Living London – Joint Venture Partnership

Connected London Living – Joint Venture partnership TfL and Grainger plc have formed a major strategic joint partnership to deliver over 3,000 new homes across a number of sites in London. Limmo Peninsula is one of these sites, delivering 35% affordable housing, in line with the London Borough of Newham’s policy for this site. Through Build to Rent, TfL and Grainger plc are setting a new standard for rental homes, with professional management and excellent services, and creating places where residents feel secure and can call ‘home’.

Limmo Peninsula is located on the banks of the River Lea, south of Canning Town Station and north of The O2 across the River Thames. Three major roads surround the site including, the Lower Lea Crossing to the south, Silvertown Way to the east and Newham Way to the north.

Two new developments lie on the opposite side of the River Lea to Limmo Peninsula; City Island and Good Luck Hope (both by Ballymore). The east of the site is bordered by the railway tracks that serve the DLR & Jubilee Line, which sit between the site and the new neighbouring development at Brunel Street Works (Linden Homes).

Currently, the Limmo Peninsula site is a Crossrail works site and is inaccessible to the local community. The site has been identified as a Strategic Site for development in the London Borough of Newham’s Local Plan for high quality accessible open space, enabled by residential development.

Connected Living London, the joint partnership between TfL and Grainger, see a great opportunity to open up the site through the provision of new green spaces, links to the River Lea and existing transport hubs and provision of much needed new housing for Newham.

The site is being redeveloped as part of a Build to Rent scheme. Build to Rent homes are built with specific need of renters in mind, improving the overall quality of housing stock in the private rented sector, ensuring a commitment to and investment in the placemaking of sites, and providing professional services such as on-site management.
