Chobham Manor is the first of five new residential neighbourhoods on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford. Delivered in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation and housing association L&Q, Chobham Manor will comprise up to 850 high-quality homes, including those suitable for families and a number of affordable properties, in the heart of the Olympic Park.

Partnership

Chobham Manor is being delivered jointly by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and Chobham Manor LLP, which comprises Taylor Wimpey and L&Q.

The overall vision for the residential neighbourhood has been devised by LLDC, providing Chobham Manor LLP with a framework to plan the design and delivery of the homes and associated infrastructure.

Our role in the scheme is to manage the construction processes, delivering infrastructure and the sale of private homes within the scheme, with L&Q managing the provision of affordable homes.

Design and sustainability

Chobham Manor will see a return to London’s traditional family neighbourhoods of terraced and mews houses, set within tree-lined avenues.

Nestled between East Village and the Lee Valley VeloPark, the new neighbourhood will help to address the local need for family-size homes with 75 per cent of properties having three or more bedrooms.

To fully capture the spirit of the familyfriendly nature of the neighbourhood, a number of multi-generational homes   have been designed specifically for Chobham Manor, to appeal to multiple generations of the same family. In addition, 28% of the properties at Chobham Manor will be provided as affordable housing.

Chobham Manor homes are being built to Code for Sustainable Homes level 4, with 25 Exemplar Sustainable Homes going beyond this.

Properties will connect to a low-carbon heat network, while utilising efficient appliances and lighting. Selected plots will benefit from brown roofs and green walls. Provision for home working is included, while secure on-plot cycle storage and electric vehicle charging points are provided. Overall residential CO2 emissions are predicted to be at least 50% lower than the 2010 Building Regulations target emission rate, with exemplar houses achieving a 100% reduction (zero emissions) on fuel for heating, hot water and lighting through on-site measures alone. Exacting levels of fabric efficiency have been carefully balanced with considerations of a future climate.

Chobham Manor will also benefit from extensive green infrastructure, with fruit trees and planting in public spaces  and even into the densely built areas through the use of trellises and green roofs. The planting also provides shading, pollution absorption, flood and wind mitigation and biodiversity benefits.
