Work has begun to install modular homes in Kidbrooke being constructed as part of the Greenwich Builds program of new council housing.

These homes are between Highbrook Road, Halsbrook Road and Rochester Way and form 18 dwellings.

It’s a short distance from other development sites along Rochester Way containing 62 further homes, and part of five overall in Kidbrooke as part of Greenwich Builds.

Two sites are located between Kidbrooke station and Thomas Tallis school. One includes 330 homes and another 117 at another.

Aside from Greenwich Council homes, Kidbrooke is seeing other housing developments are at various stages of completion.

Berkeley Homes last week gained approval for their latest increase in homes compared to the previously agreed masterplan.

Meanwhile a Transport for London meeting this week looks at housing progress including their site beside Kidbrooke station. 419 homes are nearing completion of an eventual total of more than 600.

Taken all together and Kidbrooke is to set to see at least 5,000 homes.

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.

  • Eighteen dwellings. Greenwich should ramp up providing homes for those in need. Oh wait, it can’t because most of the land has been sold off with a very low community infrastructure levy.

  • Absolutely anonymous 201486. If Greenwich Council had not previously sold off land to private developers. Council house building would have increase significantly in the Borough.

    Many council houses have been lost being replaced with mainly part buy part rent properties with very few homes for let at locally affordable rents. The old Morris Walk Estare in Charlton is one prime example of this where the number of social housing is significantly reduced.
