Royal Borough of Greenwich’s council home building programme, Greenwich Builds, achieved three further planning approvals this week, bringing the number of approved homes to 336.
The new developments, located in Avery Hill, Shooters Hill and Greenwich Peninsula are part of the council’s commitment to building over 750 sustainable new council homes for local people by 2024.
Responding to demand on housing waiting lists these schemes offer a diverse range of housing options. The first development at Condover Crescent consists of eight one- and two-bedroom apartments together with eight parking spaces; while at Thanington Court in Avery Hill we are building two three-bedroom family homes with gardens and parking spaces. Lastly our development on Commerell Place in Greenwich Peninsula features four three- and four-bedroom family homes, with gardens and play space.
All three schemes feature zero carbon technology like air source heat pumps and solar panels, which means like all Greenwich Builds homes they are both environmentally friendly and cheap to run, helping the council meet the targets set out in its draft Carbon Neutral Plan.
Once completed all of these homes will be available at genuinely affordable rents to local people on our housing waiting lists through our Choice Based Lettings system.
