Letter from

From Alys Exley-Smith
Stakeholder Engagement Officer, Lewisham Homes .

In response to the on-going housing crisis across London, Lewisham Council has established a programme to build new council homes, with the aim of starting 500 new homes by 2018. Lewisham Homes is pleased to be working in partnership with the Council to deliver a number of developments across the borough.

One of the potential sites for new council homes is in Lee Green, on Burnt Ash Hill. This is the site of what is now the Mayfield Hostel. The Council is looking at this option because the current hostel building does not make the best use of the site it sits on, and is surrounded by land which presents an opportunity for developing new homes for people in need.

While we don’t yet have fixed plans, we do think that if this site is taken forward it would lend itself to being developed using new modern methods of construction which have potential to speed up the development process considerably, minimising disruption to neighbours.

We are keen to hear your views on this, and have arranged a session where you can see our early design ideas to take place on

 

Thursday 27April between 5 and 7.30pm at

Our Lady of Lourdes Church (45 Burnt Ash Hill, Lee, London SE12 0AE)

 

There are lots of other ways you can find out more and tell us what you think, including:

 

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions, or would like to talk to us about it in more detail.
