Is there not going to be any social housing in any of this lot?! Affordable isn’t exactly affordable - it’s still 80% of the regular price, and that’s going to be £360k+ anyway…
There will be some of everything, the majority will of course be to buy. They sell very easily as proved with phase one of Chobham Manor.
I have sourced some information for you @Rachel_Collinson
The break down of the homes planned is 450 affordable, 530 private sale and 500 private homes to rent. In terms of the price of the homes. The prices of the homes for sale and to rent will be set nearer the time of them coming to market and will be comparable with other homes in the surrounding areas. Up to 30 per cent of the homes at East Wick and Sweetwater will be affordable housing, including 30 per cent social rented, 30 per cent affordable rented and 40 per cent intermediate housing with a blended average of rents at 65per cent of market value. There will also be 500 well managed and designed private homes to rent that will widen the choice for people who choose to rent or who are waiting to buy.

MAJOR HOUSING DEVELOPMENT AT THE PARK GRANTED PLANNING PERMISSION
I know that on Twitter @E20_ORG said that no green space would be lost to East Wick, but sadly, it will. Lots of it.
When you consider that once the space between Waterden Road and London Way is swallowed up, all we’ll be left with on that side of the water is the sloped green space.
Re. Twitter, We said green space is being preserved.
The post legacy plans have been outline since before the Olympics. The Stratford City master plan was enhanced and fast tracked by the 2012 Olympics. East Village being an example of that fast tracking.
We need to preserve as much green space as possible, but we also need new homes.
The tweet said that the homes won’t be built on green space, which isn’t accurate.
I totally agree that we need new homes, and acknowledge that the plans have been in place for years. I was just making the point that there won’t be much green space left when they’ve finished all of the building works.
Twitter has its limitations in terms of the 140 characters. The strip of land facing HereEast on Waterden Road went through legacy planning like the rest of the park. It’s not like planners are picking pieces of parkland to build on. East Wick and Sweetwater is a huge part of the Olympic legacy, just like Chobham Manor, Pudding Mill and other new districts. All part of the wider Stratford City Masterplan to regenerate the post industrial wasteland that is now a beautifully landscaped park. Unlike parks like Victoria Park, Richmond Park its make up is legacy sporting venues, thousands of homes, complete with a new arts and culture district.
The green space isn’t diminishing beyond the masterplan as far as we know.
We spoke directly by email - although I should have posted here too for the info of others!
Phase 1 is currently still the in the design stages and we are expecting the first homes sales launch to take place at the end of 2017.

Approved by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), the 300-home scheme marks the first phase of wider proposals to create two neighbourhoods, East Wick and Sweetwater, on the east London park.
Studio Egret West and Sheppard Robson are masterplanning the overall scheme for 1,500 homes, which also includes 10,000m² of office space, 7,200m² of retail as well as buildings by Stirling Prize-winning Alison Brooks Architects and ShedKM.
Backed by Places for People and Balfour Beatty Investments, the first-stage development also includes a ‘neighbourhood centre’ retail and office space.
The development will sit to the east of Hawkins\Brown’s £100 million Here East overhaul of the former Olympic media complex and south of Make’s Copper Box indoor sports arena.
