Six new family homes will be built in Lee, between Mercator Road and Lee High Road. Two of the homes will have two bedrooms and four will have three bedrooms.
They will be built on a site that currently contains unused and dilapidated garages in the middle of existing housing.
Each home will have a private family garden, which will contain bike stores and refuse/composting facilities. The homes will be built to very high standards of energy efficiency and sustainability and equipped with solar panels, triple glazed windows and efficient ventilation systems.
The development is part of the New Homes Better Places programme, which is a joint initiative between Lewisham Council and Lewisham Homes. The programme will deliver 250 new Council homes in the next four years.
Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock said: “Tackling the borough’s very real housing challenges is a top priority. We are pushing ahead with an ambitious programme to build new homes, invest in social housing and housing for older people and working with developers to build more homes for Lewisham people at affordable prices.”
