New council homes for local people

Our borough is suffering from the effects of London's housing crisis. Homes are unaffordable for many people including some of the key workers we all rely on to keep essential services running.

To combat this Royal Borough of Greenwich is proud to launch Greenwich Builds, one of the most ambitious Council home-building schemes ever seen in the area.

Thanks in part to funding from the Mayor of London, together with council cash, we’re now planning to build 750 new homes which will be let to Greenwich residents at genuinely affordable rents.

This will form part of our commitment to meeting the needs of the 19,000 households currently on our housing waiting lists.

Building on all sites is due to start no later than 2022 after a thorough consultation process to take on board the views of existing residents.
