Councillors learn more about proposed key worker housing at Newington Butts

This evening local councillors Lorna, Mark and Steve met the Dolphin Square Foundation to find out more about their proposed development at Newington Butts (at the junction of Kennington Lane and Kennington Park Road).

The Foundation's aim is to develop affordable (below market rent) housing, primarily for people who work in Westminster. Almost all the accommodation in the new development would be affordable housing, prioritised for people who currently live in Lambeth and work in Westminster.

The development would consist of a main block facing Newington Butts, with a supermarket/ cafe on the ground floor. There would be a back block and houses accessed from Holyoak Road at the rear. You can view and comment on the plans at Lambeth's Planning Database. The developers hope the plans will go to committee in January.
