Welcome to Woodberry Down

Woodberry Down is a sustainable place to live and enjoy, with community at its heart.  Since 2009, the area has undergone regeneration in a 30-year project to deliver over 5,500 new homes. Woodberry Down is set next to the spectacular natural surrounds of the Woodberry Wetlands and a sailing reservoir.

It is a place that is committed to the natural environment, energy conservation and to enhance the area abundant wildlife. It has attracted naturalist such as Sir David Attenborough and the BBC’s Spring Watch.

With nearby schools, a community centre and great community facilities alongside public open spaces – where events and activities take place year round – Woodberry Down has been recognised as a best practice example development in London, nationally and internationally and continues to win awards year on year. It is a regeneration that is has been delivered in partnership by residents, the community, the Council, housing association, developer and is supported by the Mayor of London.

The Woodberry Down Partnership

The London Borough of Hackney delivered the early masterplan and their current role being local planning authority.

Berkeley is Hackney Council’s appointed developer partner, with responsibility for delivering the new homes and facilities.

The Woodberry Down Community Organisation (WDCO), represent all residents and those working within the community, is elected by residents and acts as their negotiating body.

Notting Hill Genesis is the appointed registered social landlord for the new affordable housing.

A social enterprise called the Manor House Development Trust is also closely involved. It runs art, employment, health and youth projects from the new community centre on the site, and aims to ensure that the community has the resources to influence and determine its own destiny.

The Woodberry Down Partnership is supported by The Mayor of London.
