Across Waltham Forest the Council is working to deliver more affordable homes for local people, including Council homes for rent and for shared ownership where local residents get the first option to buy so they can get a foot on the housing ladder.
An important part of these developments is delivering improved transport services, new health hubs, schools and community facilities alongside new shops and work spaces to provide local jobs.
The Council has been set a target of 18,000 new homes being built in the borough over the next 10 years and our aim is to include as many affordable homes within that figure as possible.
One of the sites identified is Site C in South Grove, Walthamstow, which has previously been occupied by four industrial units.
The site is within the St James’ Quarter.
What is proposed?
The proposals include:
- 83 new homes including 20 social housing for rent, 17 shared ownership, and 46 for private sale
- a 1,500 sqm health care facility with related car parking spaces
- four wheelchair accessible car parking spaces
- landscaping and amenity space
- secure cycle parking
- solar panels will be installed
Who will do the development?
Sixty Bricks, the Council owned development company will be responsible for building this scheme.
