Claridge Way is a green artery running through the Moorings, one of the densest parts of Thamesmead, southeast London. Over the past year, Jan Kattein Architects have been working with Peabody to put into action ideas for improving Claridge Way that emerged from conversations with local community groups, residents and schoolchildren, including:
- a wildflower bee road
- a woodland adventure walk
- a painted playroute
- a primary school gardening club
- new back gates and external planters for adjacent residents
A wide range of ambitious ideas were captured in the Common Plan for Claridge Way. After residents fed back on this document early this year, we have been pushing forward with those proposals which were identified as clear priorities. Each element of the Plan is being developed in further detail through dialogue with relevant local stakeholders to ensure that proposals meet the needs of those who will use them most.
