Wandsworth Council’s planning committee has approved plans for a new 100% affordable housing scheme in Roehampton, which will include homes for older people with a range of care needs.
Planning chairman Cllr Will Sweet commented: “This is a 100 per cent affordable housing scheme that will provide high-quality homes for local people.
“Nearly half will offer much needed extra care accommodation to meet the needs of residents who require enhanced levels of support and assistance.
“It will also provide more than 50 homes for people on lower incomes. They will be offered for rent at London Living Rent levels and also on low cost shared ownership terms.
“All the properties will be built to a very high standard with generous floorspace, a dual aspect outlook, good communal facilities and attractive outdoor space.
“And because the site is located on the border with Richmond Park, it was important that we were able to shape the scheme to not only deliver the maximum level of affordable housing possible but also to limit the development’s impact on this historic green space.”
