Hammersmith & Fulham Council is investing in a £38 million project to build around 80 new homes, of which at least 47 will be affordable and prioritised for residents

The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting on Monday, July 18, which reaffirmed H&f’s commitment to developing 3,000new homes in the borough over the next eight years.

The construction – subject to planning permission – will be at these four sites:

  • Barclay Close, Cassidy Road (six homes)
  • Becklow Gardens (13 homes)
  • The Grange, Goldhawk Road (16 homes) and
  • on the Pearscroft Estate, adjacent to Jepson House (45 homes).     

H&F will soon start working with residents to develop the designs of the new homes on each site.

These sites form part of H&F’s direct delivery development programme that features 12 projects and the completion of 1,150 new homes.

These projects will see 65 per cent of homes classed as affordable. They will also incorporate new community infrastructure, offices, schools and education facilities. The direct delivery programme sits alongside our partnership developments which will see a further 650 homes delivered.

The council will continue to spend £1m a week to modernise and refurbish our existing housing stock as part of our £600m commitment to tenants and leaseholders.

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Frances Umeh, H&F cabinet member for Housing and Homelessness, said: “With such an acute housing shortage, we are determined to keep building good homes for local people.

“Our investment in these four projects keeps us on track to achieve our target, and we will continue to do all we can to tackle the housing crisis that affects so many people in our borough and beyond.”
