Our Proposals

The proposals for the redevelopment of Colosseum Retail Park include:

  • Up to 1,800 new homes (studio, one, two and three beds) to buy and rent including around 500 affordable homes
  • Circa 50,000 sqft of flexible work space, targeted to small and medium sized businesses
  • Over 30,000 sqft of retail, leisure and commercial spaces, and community uses
  • 1 crèche
  • 1 doctor’s surgery
  • Over 400 jobs created on the site once complete, in addition to over 200 during construction
  • A significant amount of public open space amounting to over a third of the site area
  • A new travel hub where people can rent bikes and cars, plan their journeys on public transport, and sign up for car clubs and cycling schemes to encourage a shift to more sustainable transport

If approved, the scheme will be delivered in phases. In the first phase in 2022, 450-500 homes will be built, and The Heart will be developed. The Heart represents public space at the gateway to the neighbourhood and is surrounded by commercial and retail space allowing for a variety of uses. There will be a curated programme of events, providing a broad scope of activities for residents, workers and visitors to participate in. The rest of the scheme will then be built out in phases as the other leases expire.
