Linkcity is working with our construction sister company, Bouygues UK on the first phase of the Tustin Estate scheme, a significant housing development for Southwark Council. Overall, the scheme will feature nearly 700 new homes.

The development is the first large-scale project procured through Pagabo’s Developer Led Framework. The scheme includes 250 replacement council homes and shared equity properties, 220 additional council homes including keyworker homes, and 220 homes for sale. In addition, it will feature a replacement school building, a central park, refurbishment of existing council homes and at least 1,800 sqm of commercial floorspace. Having started on site in autumn 2022, the whole project is planned to complete in 2030.

A Community Scheme

The mandate for the project was established through a community ballot, and Linkcity has communicated with residents from the start of our involvement to ensure they are kept updated on our plans. Residents have been able to feed back and influence the various aspects of the project, including design, construction strategy and social value.

Putting Sustainability at the Centre

The project is expected to achieve a 94% reduction on carbon emissions when in use. A large part of this is due to the clean energy being supplied by the local waste-to-energy district heating network. Additional measures such as high-insulation building fabric, solar panels, SUDs, and air-source heat pumps for individual houses will also contribute to this. Most of the demolition materials will be reused, demolition will be limited through refurbishing a section of the estate.

Linkcity has committed to raising awareness of important subjects like biodiversity through workshops with the local school and the construction of bug hotels.

We’re delighted to have started work on Phase 1 and we can’t wait to see the plans come to fruition. Alongside our construction partner Bouygues UK, we are committed to providing social and economic value through local employment and education opportunities and achieving a significant reduction on carbon emissions.

Tom Jackson, Development Director at Linkcity

It would be difficult to find a better large-scale scheme than that of Tustin Estate to be the first procured through our Developer Led Framework. Connecting Linkcity with the London Borough of Southwark is set to create social and economic value for the local community … We look forward to seeing the scheme progress and the benefits come to fruition.
