Regeneration rivals


FOUR developers are bidding to tear down a notorious London housing estate and replace it with one of the largest regeneration projects ever proposed.

Bellway, Countryside Properties, Berkeley Homes and Crest Nicholson are vying for the huge Kidbrooke masterplan on the Ferrier Estate in Greenwich.

Council planners want nearly 2,000 homes to be replaced by 4,398 homes at a cost of £550 million.The winning developer will be chosen next April.

The site, which straddles the A2 Blackwell Tunnel approach road, covers 1,900 ha and is notorious for its levels of crime, vandalism and unemployment.
