In June 2016, planning approval was given for the first phase of works at Willoughby Lane on the old National Grid site.

In 2019, the first trains will stop at the brand new railway station at Meridian Water. Construction will also be well underway for the first 725 new homes, delivered by the Council’s development partner Barratt London, part of the UK’s largest homes builder Barratt Homes, along with new shops and open spaces.
