Planning permission has been granted for 20 low cost rent homes on the Patmore Estate in Nine Elms.
The new development will replace a disused garage area off Deeley Road.
The proposal is for a part four, part five storey brick building to provide a mix of one, two and three bedroom flats and maisonettes. They will be owned and managed by the council.
All 20 will be offered to Wandsworth residents to rent at below market rates.
Top priority will be given to local council tenants living in homes which are bigger than they need or are overcrowded. Once these tenants move in their previous homes will become available for other Wandsworth residents, creating chains of beneficial moves in this part of north Battersea.
Last October plans were approved for another 15 new council homes on the Patmore Estate and a further 22 on the neighboring Savona Estate.
All three of these developments are part of the council’s ‘Self Build Programme’ which will see the authority deliver over 200 new low cost rent homes built across Wandsworth in the next five years.
