The Royal Borough of Greenwich released these sites in Kidbrooke specifically for Community Land Trusts
Greenwich join a string of boroughs including Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Croydon, and Camden in creating opportunities for community led housing, with several others working on individual schemes.
Cabinet Member for Housing, Cllr Anthony Okereke said “this initiative is part of our pledge to use innovative approaches to develop affordable housing in perpetuity for the borough’s residents and create sustainable communities”.
Greenwich Citizens Housing and London CLT were successful in being selected with designs consisting of two modest, low-rise infill housing schemes which carefully respond to their immediate neighbours. The proposals look to enhance their surroundings and public realm, including a focus on improving the well used pedestrian route from Susan Road to the Kidbrooke Parade.
They also secured the Fleixstowe Road site in Abbey Wood.
