A former garage in Hainault has been converted into a block of nine energy efficient flats through Redbridge Council’s affordble housing scheme.

Councillors, officers and staff from developer Luminus Developments Ltd and contractors Aspen Build came together to welcome the new residents of Coppice Path Court housing development, in Coppice Path, on Monday, July 2.

The homes - made up of four three-bedroom houses, three three-bedroom duplexes and two two-bedroom flats - were completed on June 13.

This adds to similar council developments Yellowpine Way, Stanway Close and Rayleigh Road, which provide permanent homes for those living in temporary accommodation.

Leader of the council Cllr Jas Athwal said: “It’s wonderful to meet the residents and to welcome them to their new homes.

“This is a fresh start for many of them and a great opportunity to build their own communities.

The development was part-funded by the Mayor of London.
