Planning applications have been made for the next wave of Redbridge Council’s affordable housing, which would see more than 150 homes built across the borough.

Spread across eight separate council-owned sites, the plans would see 154 new homes built to ease the pressure on the borough’s housing lists.

Subject to achieving successful planning consents, development work is expected to start on site as early as Spring 2017 and the first new homes will be available for letting by March 2018.

Councillor Farah Hussain, cabinet member for housing said, “Creating more affordable homes is an important priority for us and we know that it’s key to building a sustainable future for Redbridge.

“We are pushing forward with our affordable house building programme and I am very pleased that plans have been submitted for 154 new homes. They will contribute towards increasing the supply of much needed affordable homes in the Borough”.

Redbridge Council recently completed work on 19 new affordable homes for rent at Medway Close and Northdown Gardens.
