Fairview New Homes

Formed in 1961, Fairview is a privately-owned residential developer and home builder operating in London and the south east. Their developments range from small scale schemes of 20 homes up to major regeneration projects encompassing over 800 flats and houses. The majority of units are developed for open market sale, although the group also works closely with housing associations to provide affordable homes.

Fairview already have a number of successful housing developments in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, including Synergy at Victoria Way in Charlton and Maritime on Greenwich High Road. You can find out more about Fairview by visiting

Where is the site?

The site has Pier Way to the south and west, Camelot Close to the north and Broadwater Dock to the east and south. The care home closed in October 2019, and the current buildings are now vacant with little prospect of a new care home operator taking on the site.

With the site falling within the Greater London Authority’s Thamesmead and Abbey Wood Opportunity Area – which is earmarked for 15,500 new homes in the coming years – we believe the site would not only benefit from regeneration, but can make a significant contribution to the delivery of much needed new homes in the Opportunity Area.

What are the proposals?

Fairview’s emerging proposals are for:

  • Around 341 much needed new homes – including houses and apartments in a range of studios, 1, 2, 3 bed units, with 19% being family-sized properties
  • These new homes will be in a series of buildings ranging from 2.5 storeys high close to Pier Way and Camelot Close, up to a maximum of 15 storeys in height close to Broadwater Dock.
  • 131 car parking spaces are planned – a provision of 38%, plus two car club spaces
  • 10% of our homes will be wheelchair accessible
    New, publicly accessible green open spaces with high quality landscaping
  • New play areas for residents
  • Our current aspiration is provide a level of affordable housing in excess of the Council’s 35% policy
