The Leader of the Council Cllr Clare Coghill and Portfolio Lead Member for Housing Cllr Khevyn Limbajee were in attendance at Tuesday’s event. Cllr Coghill told the local press “I’m really pleased that these wonderful new homes are being built for families. One of my priorities as the Leader of the Council is to make sure that everyone has a roof over their heads and providing affordable, high-quality housing is vital to achieving this.”


Dick Mortimer, Executive Director of Development for Peabody Group, said: “It is our pleasure to be working with the Council to provide high quality, genuinely affordable homes for Waltham Forest. We recognise that there is a significant demand for high quality, family sized homes in the borough and more than one third of this development will be family units with three or more bedrooms.”

Dan Germann, Managing Director of Keepmoat Regeneration, added: “This project exemplifies the effective redevelopment of former NHS land for community regeneration. We are continuing to further our presence in the borough, and build on our commitment to deliver projects which leave lasting, tangible benefits. Keepmoat Regeneration is extremely pleased to be working alongside the Peabody Group to deliver these new affordable homes.”


The Peabody Group received planning permission for 79 units on the sites in 2016. Initially 30 per cent of these units were to be affordable; however, after negotiating with the council’s Development and Investment Team it was agreed that all of the 79 units would be affordable. 36 will be let at social rent levels, and the remaining 43 marketed as shared ownership properties.
