Homes for Lambeth – Lambeth Council’s wholly-owned housing delivery company – achieves another planning success, with 20 new affordable homes on Ropers Walk, Trinity Rise approved by Lambeth’s Planning Committee.
These much-needed new homes will provide affordable family-sized homes, with a communal landscaped garden for existing and future residents. The proposals also reduce carbon emissions by 80% exceeding target levels and contributing towards Lambeth Council’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030.
Commenting on the news, Jitinder Takhar, Chief Executive of Homes for Lambeth said:
“This marks another significant moment for Homes for Lambeth as we continue to increase the number of high-quality homes in Lambeth. The 20 new homes at Trinity Rise will also provide many more genuinely affordable new homes with 14 of the new homes at council-level rent.”
Councillor Matthew Bennett, Lambeth’s Lead Member for Planning, Investment & New Homes remarked:
“I’m delighted that these new homes have secured planning permission. This will see the amount of council housing at Trinity Rise more than double, with a nearly threefold increase in the number of family-sized council homes. These new homes will be larger than the ones they replace and will see an 80% reduction in carbon as part of our commitment to fighting the climate emergency.
“We set HFL up as a fully council-owned company to build more council and affordable homes to tackle the housing crisis here in Lambeth and provide better homes for local families. This is just the latest scheme to secure permission in an ambitious programme right across the borough.”
Caroline Pillay, Chair of Homes for Lambeth Group, welcomed the news and said:
“At Homes for Lambeth, we are determined that we play our role in building the genuinely affordable homes which are so desperately needed, whilst tackling climate change. This application will make a significant contribution to making Lambeth greener and cleaner.”
