The Mayor joined Swan's Chief Executive, John Synnuck and Swan's Executive Director for Regeneration and Development, Geoff Pearce, to see first-hand how the development partners are transforming the estate into over 1,500 new homes, of which 679 will be affordable. The Blackwall Reach project has benefitted from £50m of loan funding from City Hall to accelerate the scheme.

After walking through the estate, the Mayor was met by Sandra Fawcett, Swan's Executive Director - Operations, who took him on a tour of Swan's new community facility 'The Reach', built as part of the regeneration. Meeting a variety of residents and community groups, he discussed the benefits of the 'The Reach' as well as their new and improved homes at Blackwall Reach.
