Despite delays due to the lockdown earlier in the year, our development team has several building sites up and running, bringing new social and affordable housing to Lewisham.
At Kenton Court in Sydenham, we are building 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 demolition stage is over and foundations have been laid.
At Marnock Road we are building six three-storey houses on lad to the rear of one of our existing blocks near Crofton Park station.
The development at Knapdale Close in Forest Hill will provide three three-bed houses and 14 two and three bed flats, all for social rent, on the site of existing garages and a car parking area. The plans also include wider improvements for the estate, including landscaping and play space as well as additional car parking and cycle storage.
Our development of 56 new homes at 1 Creekside in Deptford is scheduled for completion in summer 2022. In a first for the borough, we purchased the land on behalf of the council with existing planning permission for a block of flats plus commercial space, with a developer already on board, and will be boosting the affordable housing provision from 36% to 100%.
