The Carpenters Estate is set to be redeveloped, providing new homes and jobs in Stratford.
With four options for the site on the table, cabinet members unanimously voted for the joint venture option, with the council working alongside a partner to deliver the new estate.
Deirdra Armsby, head of regeneration and planning, said the redevelopment would deliver “desirable homes on the estate.”
She said: “The proposals have been under consideration since 2000, and a decant process started in 2005.”
Yesterday evening’s meeting saw members hear from Warren Lubin, chairman of the Carpenters Residents Steering Group.
He called for a consideration of refurbishing, rather than redeveloping, the estate.
But this was rejected, with the ongoing redevelopment of Canning Town cited as a benchmark to show how things can be done.
