LLDC appoints Clare Hebbes as Director of Development
The London Legacy Development Corporation has appointed Clare Hebbes as Director of Development to oversee the development of the new neighbourhoods in the north of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Over the last 20 years, Clare has worked on some of the most significant urban regeneration schemes across London and Europe. With a passion for making cities better places to live, Clare spent 12 years working on the redevelopment of King’s Cross, from the initial masterplanning of the whole site through to the delivery of some of the first buildings and spaces. She joins LLDC as Director of Development from Lendlease where she led the Urban Realm team for four years, responsible for the design, management and activation of the public realm and the infrastructure across the portfolio including Elephant Park and International Quarter London.
Clare’s role will focus on new Park neighbourhoods at Chobham Manor, East Wick and Sweetwater delivering c2,500 homes as well as the delivery of the Hackney Wick masterplan.
Janet Townsend, who has been at the LLDC since its inception, will continue as Director of Development for the new neighbourhoods in the south of the area at Stratford Waterfront, Bridgewater, Pudding Mill Lane and Rick Roberts Way.
Clare’s appointment comes as part of a re-shaping in the Development Team to support a wide range of housing, cultural and educational projects. LLDC has appointed 15 new roles in total including design, planning and development roles in our Development directorate.
Rosanna Lawes, Executive Director of Development, said:
“The Development team has a huge responsibility to deliver some of the key legacy promises of the London 2012 Games in placemaking, housing and our plans for East Bank, the new culture and education district. Our recruitment campaign was aimed at attracting strong calibre applications to support an already established and talented team, by providing great opportunities for career development and flexible working.”
Clare Hebbes, Director of Development at the London Legacy Development Corporation, said:
“I am immensely excited by the scale of ambition at the London Legacy Development Corporation and the potential to truly deliver life changing opportunities for the people who will live on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. I am delighted to be joining the team and look forward to working with partners to deliver this next exciting chapter of the regeneration of east London and make this one of the most desirable places to live.”
