The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has approved Westfield's plans for the redevelopment of land to the north of its shopping centre in west London's White City.

The £1bn scheme includes plans for up to 1,347 homes, 162 of which will be affordable, across several blocks. The proposals also include a 230,000 sq ft John Lewis department store; cafes; restaurants; offices; a leisure complex; and a children's play area.

Westfield expects construction to take place in phases over a period of up to nine years.

"Westfield has had a transformational impact on Shepherds Bush and White City, kickstarting widespread social and economic regeneration. This expansion will create thousands of much-needed new homes and jobs and ensure that the area remains one of West London's leading shopping destinations for many years to come", said the mayor in a statement.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council resolved to grant outline planning permission for the redevelopment in April.  Construction is expected to commence next year.
