    The average cost of renting a flat in Tower Hamlets is now more than the average household income. There are already more than 19,000 households on the housing register in need of an affordable home and more than 2,000 households are living in temporary accommodation. Although more new homes were built in Tower Hamlets in 2018 than anywhere else in the UK, the average price is now 22 times the average salary, so our residents often can’t afford to buy them.

    In response, the council has committed to delivering 2,000 new council homes. These genuinely affordable homes will include properties big enough for families. One in ten will be wheelchair accessible.

    At just eight square miles, space to build in Tower Hamlets is in short supply. We’re making the most of land that we already own, including buildings no longer used as they once were.

    But that isn’t enough. We also need to look closely at whether there is room for us to increase the number of homes on existing estates.

    We can do this by finding ‘infill sites’ or gaps on estates where new buildings can go. We’re also looking carefully to see if we can redevelop existing estates to replace older buildings with ones that are modern, better designed and crucially, that provide more council homes for our residents.

    We have looked closely at all the estates across the borough to identify where there is the best opportunity to increase the amount of council housing. We found that not only does the area around Harriott, Apsley and Pattison (HAP) Houses have room to accommodate new homes, there will be space for a new mosque and improved open spaces.

    The council is committed to providing high quality, well designed homes and surroundings to create healthy and sustainable environments where people want to live. We will deliver a mix of home sizes to meet the local housing need, with a combination of flats and duplexes and a mix of tenures for families with children and for small and single person households.

    Landscaped spaces will include trees, planting, grassed areas and children’s play areas. Biodiversity will be key in planning planting, buildings will be laid out to maximise daylight and sunlight, while homes will be energy efficient. Developments will be well connected, with safe and active streets designed to reduce antisocial behaviour. We will enhance and continue to build a strong sense of community and belonging in any development.

    For those who weren't able to attend the most recent consultation in September, we hope the video below gives you a sense of what was presented for discussion. Please note that the design has evolved further since September and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on these changes at the upcoming consultation sessions in December.

    We want residents to be able to have their say as we shape our plans for the development. In the coming months will be holding more engagement events and providing an opportunity for more feedback.
