Southwark Council plans to build 2,500 new council homes by May 2022 to tackle the urgent need for affordable housing.
At the Daniel’s Road estate, residents identified two narrow strips of land to build 19 much needed new homes.
Just three months into the build, the Covid pandemic rapidly unfolded.
Councillor Stephanie Cryan, Cabinet Member for Council Homes and Homelessness said “I was excited to see the progress made on this development which will be exclusively council housing to meet the urgent need in the borough.
I was impressed by Osborne’s health and safety practices and their commitment to meeting the planned timescales of the project despite the disruption caused by COVID-19.”
