West Silvertown Urban Village

Categories: Property, Social Welfare

Trying to understand 'West Silvertown Urban Village' we found "The Urban Village: A Real or Imagined Contribution to Sustainable Development?" which contains 'West Silvertown urban village case study' published in 2002. At Final Report we found: "West Silvertown - lies on the edge of Royal Victoria Dock, East London, and consisted  mostly of derelict land with a small residential population in two tower blocks. It was  developed as an urban village following a competition organised by the London Docklands  Development Corporation (LDDC) in 1994, which was won by Wimpey Homes in  association with the Peabody Trust. Work began in the mid 1990s, with the first phase, of  1000 houses, completed at the time of the research." There is much more.

'Village' is certainly not the word that sprang to mind as we walked around the area.
