In the next few months, we will be welcoming residents into 37 brand new homes across three sites.
At Kenton Court on Adamsrill Road in Bellingham, we are completing 25 new one-, two- and three-bedroom flats, all to be let at social rents, on the site of a former extra care facility.
The Canonbie Road development in Forest Hill will provide six homes, made up of two- and three-bed self-contained flats, some with private gardens as well as a large shared garden. It will provide much needed, high-quality temporary homes for homeless families currently occupying B&B/nightly paid accommodation.
Purchased by the council in 2015, the site was previously occupied by a three-storey building which was in a state of disrepair.
At Marnock Road we are building a terrace of three-storey family houses on land to the rear of one of our existing blocks near Crofton Park station.
This scheme involved the demolition of a row of garages to provide six new four-bedroom houses for London Affordable Rent. The development will improve the public realm around the site with additional planting and parking provisions, including electric vehicle charging points and cycle parking.
These are just three of the 14 schemes we currently have under construction, which together will provide 293 homes to contribute towards alleviating the housing crisis in Lewisham. Our development team is working on bringing more projects through the pipeline, with a further 825 homes across 14 sites in design and planning. These include 497 for social rent and 328 for sale or shared ownership to subsidise the programme. We expect to see more starts on site by the end of the financial year.
They are all part of the London Borough of Lewisham’s ambitious Building for Lewisham programme.
