Lewisham's first new council homes in 30 years to be built in Lee
LEWISHAM'S first new council homes for 30 years have been given planning permission by the local authority.
Six family homes - ranging from two to three bedrooms - will be built in Lee on a site currently containing unused garages between Mercator Road and Lee High Road.
All houses will have a private family garden, containing bike stores and refuse facilities.
It is part of the New Homes Better Places programme - a joint initiative between Lewisham Council and Lewisham Homes which will build 250 council homes over the next four years.
Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock said: "Tackling the borough’s very real housing challenges is a top priority.
"We are pushing ahead with an ambitious programme to build new homes, invest in social housing and housing for older people and working with developers to build more homes for Lewisham people at affordable prices."
