Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

What are the proposals?

The aim is to develop up to 20 new homes of 100% social housing including family-sized homes and wheelchair accessible housing. These will occupy the small piece of council owned land at the north end of Edward Mann Close.

The building will be around 21 meters in height and will consist of the below units;

Unit SizeNumber of units proposed
1 bed / 1 person1
1 bed / 2 person7
2 bed / 3 person5
3 bed / 4 person6
3 bed / 5 person1
Total20


Why does the council want to build more homes?

The Mayor has committed to delivering 2,000 new council homes across Tower Hamlets by 2022.

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.


What other improvements are there?

It will be a car free development for non-wheelchair accessible homes. The project will enhance garden space and doorstep play near Cable Street with improved refuse facilities for existing households.




What is this consultation about?

We want to give our residents the opportunity to have their say on any developments happening in their area. You know your communities best and it's important that you are able to shape the way they change for the future.

This consultation is to present our progress to local residents with architects and council officers available to listen to your views and answer any questions you may have.

We previously consulted on this site before the pandemic and in August 2020 and now want to consult with residents once again before submitting the planning application.

We will be hosting an online session and two drop-in sessions where you can talk to officers face to face regarding this development. More details on these sessions are provided below.
