Berkeley Homes today launched ‘Living at Kidbrooke Village’ – a specially commissioned report which examines how social sustainability can be measured by the housebuilding industry, using the emerging Kidbrooke Village project as an example.
The report is the result of household and site surveys, in-depth and one-on-one meetings with residents, many of whom have moved to Kidbrooke Phase 1 from the Ferrier Estate, which was demolished to make way for this 20 year project which will deliver an entire new London suburb. The first phase, designed by LIfschutz Davidson Sandilands, includes social and market housing overlooking Sutcliffe Park.
The report shows the first phases of Kidbrooke performing well against the key indicators of community strength and quality of life, and extremely well against benchmarked schemes in the south east of England.
The report was launched at event hosted by Berkeley and featuring a keynote speech by Sir Bob Kerslake.
