The Bouygues-owned developer will deliver nearly 700 new homes, via the Pagabo Developer Led framework, for Southwark Council. 

  • 250 replacement council/shared equity homes 
  • 220 additional council homes 
  • 220 homes for sale 
  • A new central park 
  • 1,800 sqm of commercial space 

Linkcity and Bouygues UK were selected for the scheme by the council in 2021. Planning permission was granted in October this year. 

A mandate for the scheme was brought by community ballot. Residents have since fed back on design, construction and social value.    

The Tustin Estate should achieve a 97% reduction in carbon emissions, said Linkcity. 

  • clean energy via a waste-to-energy heating network 
  • high insulation building materials 
  • solar panels 
  • sustainable drainage systems 
  • air-source heat pumps 

Most of the demolition materials acquired during redevelopment will also be reused. 

“Alongside our construction partner Bouygues UK, we are committed to providing social and economic value through local employment and education opportunities and achieving a significant reduction on carbon emissions,” said Tom Jackson, development director at Linkcity. 

The project is planned to complete in 2030.
