Regeneration: Juniper House, Walthamstow


What is planned?

As well as providing 91 new homes for local people, the council’s plans for developing Juniper House, in Hoe Street, Walthamstow, include providing a 53-place pre-school nursery with its own play-area at the back of the site, new shops and a pocket park at the front along Hoe Street.

The redevelopment of Juniper House will deliver 91 new homes on the site, 41 of which will be classed as affordable housing. There will be 23 homes for social rent for local people, including some larger three and four bedroom homes to help families in need of affordable housing. Another 18 will be shared ownership homes designed to help local people afford a first home.

The council will keep ownership of the land when the development is completed.

Who is doing the work?

Hill Partnerships Limited has been awarded the design and build contract for this project.
