Building Homes for Wandsworth People programme

Housing Strategy and Development Team – Wandsworth Borough Council

 

Submission Summary:

This programme is not just an admirable demonstration of increasing and accelerating affordable housing delivery.  It also demonstrates the Council’s intentions to accompany much needed housing with environmental and social infrastructure that enhances the aesthetics of an area and boosts resident cohesion.

Our focus on low and middle-income residents ensures that the programme is a radical and effective measure to provide affordable homes for local people.

The programme also shows how local government can – with careful planning in the face of tough circumstances – achieve land use efficiencies on otherwise underutilised space, outside of estate-wide demolition and onerous decanting exercises.
