We are consulting on plans to build a mixture of new council homes and homes for private rent at Copenhagen Place on the Locksley Estate ahead of a planning application later this year. In total the development will include 28 homes.

The new homes being developed on the site will be well-designed, built to modern space standards, be energy efficient and make a positive contribution to the local environment.

The development will contribute to our commitment to deliver 2,000 new council homes across Tower Hamlets.

Why we need to build

There are more than 18,000 people on the housing register in Tower Hamlets with nearly 10,000 in acute housing need. Families with a need for a four bedroom home - which these new properties will be - can wait up to 13 years and in some cases even longer.

Nearly 2,000 households have been placed in temporary accommodation, waiting for a permanent home and according to the national homelessness charity, Shelter, 60 per cent of residents in Tower Hamlets struggle to meet their housing costs.

Our residents are facing a housing crisis and these new affordable council homes, part of 2,000 that will be delivered in total, will make a genuine difference.


About the development

The design will offer the following key features:

  • Green roof with solar panels.
  • Spacious, light-filled flats.
  • Parking for existing residents.
  • A new community garden.
  • Generous balconies.
  • A community centre.
  • A generous entrance lobby.
  • A dedicated residential entrance.
