Development and regeneration

Our development programme is focused on building high quality affordable homes for people in east London and Essex. From small developments of just a handful of homes, through to large developments with hundreds of homes, we always focus on high quality design and investing in the community.

Our development programme is focused on building high quality affordable homes for people in east London and Essex. From small developments of just a handful of homes, through to large developments with hundreds of homes, we always focus on high quality design and investing in the community.

We firmly believe that good quality housing is a key ingredient in building balanced and sustainable communities. For this reason we try as much as possible to ‘pepper pot’ our developments. What this means is providing a range of different renting and buying options within the same development, with all homes built to the same standard. It allows for a mixed community to live in the same area, at a level of rent or home ownership that they can afford. 

Sustainability and affordability are also core to our approach to development. Homes that are energy efficient are not only good for the environment but are also good for our residents who spend less on their energy bills. We are also increasingly using our development and sustainability expertise to improve the environmental credentials of our older homes.

Over the next few years we'll be working with a range of public and private sector partners on developing hundreds of new homes throughout east London and Essex, including some major regeneration projects in Stepney, Stratford, Bromley By Bow and Walthamstow.
