Mayor gives green light to new homes
The Mayor of London has now given the green light to our plans to build new homes alongside Padnall Lake.
This means that we have cleared the final hurdle in our bid to build much-needed affordable housing for the local community. We will now appoint a contractor so that the first phase of building work can start, which we hope will be towards the summer.
Our aim is to build the homes as fast as possible with the minimum inconvenience to local residents.
We plan to build the housing in phases, and we will use modern construction methods. Many parts of the new ‘modular’ homes will be built off-site in factories and assembled and finished on site. This can be up to 40 per cent faster than building using conventional methods. It also reduces disturbance and is much more environment friendly.
The first phase of 81 homes will be built at the western end of the site, nearest the Lake. You can see a detailed map on our website and our planned timetable is below.
From now We will appoint a building contractor.
Spring 2021 Ground preparation works could start for the first phase
Autumn 2021 The first modular elements could be delivered to site and assembled
Late 2021 We will submit what is known as a 'reserved matters planning application' for the second phase of new homes
Early 2023 The first phase could be completed and tenants could move in
By 2024 The second phase tenants could move in
