The Mayor of London selected Catalyst Housing Group as development partner for a major redevelopment of the St Ann’s Hospital site in Tottenham in December 2020. The scheme features 56 affordable homes set aside for community ownership.
This will make St Ann’s one of the largest community led housing schemes in London.
The GLA launched the search for a community organisation to take on these homes today. Interested organisations should review the information, and submit their joint EOI and sifting brief to the GLA by 14:00 on 4th November 2022.
The wider project is engaging the local community in other facilities and in the landscaping plans for St Ann’s. The remaining affordable homes are intended to be around 60% London Affordable Rent, 20% London Shared Ownership and 20% London Living Rent, including housing for Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust workers, who will be able to make use of London Living Rent homes to ensure staff can be housed locally.
The plans for the St Ann’s site are very exciting, not least because they allow community led housing to become a more consistent part of a diverse London housing landscape. We look forward to supporting community led housing groups to make the most of this opportunity to empower future residents and local people in taking collective control of their housing.
