New residents of Lewisham Homes council homes at Wise Court, Lee got a visit from a special guest this week as the new homes were inspected by Mayor of Lewisham Damien Egan. Desislava and her children were living in temporary accommodation some distance away before the new homes were built.
The Mayor was accompanied by Lewisham Homes Board Chair Ainsley Forbes and Chief Executive Margaret Dodwell. He inspected the new, modern property, which features three bedrooms and a built-in sprinkler system. The Wise Court development contains 24 homes (18 flats and six maisonettes) of varying sizes, all for council rent.
The development is part of our commitment to help the Mayor reach his target of 1,000 more council homes in Lewisham by 2022. You can find out more about upcoming developments on our New Homes page.
Keep an eye out next month for the next edition of Home, our resident magazine, which features an interview with Desislava the difference her new home has made for her family, and much more.
