Lewisham Council plan for 32 council homes approved

Lewisham Council have approved 32 homes at a site on Mayow Road near Forest Hill school.

Twenty six flats will be for homeless families, and six for those with learning difficulties and/or autism.

The project is a collaboration with the NHS and sees supported living accommodation residents having 24/7 care.

Plans passed extremely quickly with submission in mid-August and approval six weeks later. Work on site should start in spring 2020.

According to Lewisham Council: “A new special educational needs school is also planned for construction directly opposite the site.”




As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
