Tower Hamlets residents working together to create self-build homes on tight infill sites.
Platform Homes were successful in securing the Christian Street site through Tower Hamlets Council’s Affordable Self-Build Programme. They have a wider membership of prospective residents, but the site is likely to accommodate two homes, where affordability will be protected in perpetuity. They are aiming to use modern methods of construction.
How we’re helping
We supported the group in preparing a submission for the affordable self-build programme, particularly around governance structures and finance. We are currently supporting discussions with adjacent landowners, as the groups look to submit a planning application.
