Lewisham Homes has planning permission for first modular development #ukhousing

Lewisham Homes, the housing management arm of Lewisham Council, has received planning permission for a 25-home development which will be its first modular cross-laminated timber development.

All of the homes in the Kenton Court development will be for social rent as part of the local authority and Lewisham Homes’ borough-wide programme which aims to develop 500 homes across Lewisham for social rent.

The development will consist of mainly family homes arranged around a landscaped courtyard.

Andrew Waugh, director of the scheme’s architect Waugh Thistleton, said: “We are very excited to be delivering Lewisham Homes’ first cross-laminated timber modular housing scheme. This scheme is an innovative use of a small site in south London that will deliver highly sustainable social homes for the people of Lewisham.”

Kenton Court will replace a vacant three-story building that was previously used as a residential care facility, which has now been replaced by new build care facilities in another part of Lewisham.

Steve Coleman, director of development and investment at Lewisham Homes, has previously told Inside Housing that the borough plans to use modular construction to build at least 100 new council houses.
