Work has begun on the next wave of affordable housing in Redbridge.
The new Coppice Path development, in Hainault, will provide nine affordable family homes for rent, with families expected to be able to move in next summer.
The council received grant support from the Greater London Authority and 56pc of the on-site labour was sourced locally.
A time capsule was also buried for future generations as part of the ground-breaking ceremony on Tuesday.
Councillor Farah Hussain, cabinet member for housing, said: “Creating more homes, including affordable homes, is a priority for us and we know that it’s key to building a sustainable future for Redbridge.
“Coppice Path will provide much needed affordable housing for rent that will benefit local residents, and it’s very positive to have such a high proportion of local labour being used during the construction phase.
“I’m very pleased at the partnership that has been formed between the council and Aspen Build Ltd to deliver this.”
