Lindley Estate Pre-Planning

Closed 4 Jan 2021

Opened 16 Nov 2020


You have been directed to this website from a letter about our exciting proposal for a new council homes at council rent on the Lindley Estate.

With over 10,000 households on the councils waiting list the need for genuinely affordable housing has never been greater and Southwark council, with support from the GLA, has a once in a lifetime opportunity to build new homes in the borough.

Over the last few months the council has been working with a small group of local residents developing the designs for new council homes in your local area. This process of designing the new homes is now complete.

Why we are consulting

At this stage in our process, we would usually invite you to attend a drop in event to see the completed scheme before a planning application is submitted. As we are unable to hold such events we will instead be publishing the Lindley Estate presentation boards for you to review at home which includes  a “You said we did” summary of the consultation undertaken thus far. These can be found in the "Related documents" section below.

Whilst acknowledging the difficulties caused by COVID-19, the Council continues to be committed to its target of delivering 11,000 new homes by 2043, to provide much needed council homes for those in housing need. Therefore, where possible, the New Homes Team continues to operate on a business as usual basis to ensure that new homes continue to be developed.

Thank you for your time and we hope that the information provided is of interest. Please could you compleate the short survey below.
