Plans have been announced to replace a derelict housing block with more than 130 new homes - which will be “genuinely affordable”.
Hammersmith and Fulham Council is working with Stanhope, which is part of the team developing the BBC Television Centre , on the plans for Edith Summerskill House on the Clem Attlee Estate in Fulham.
Under the proposals, the 17-storey block would be demolished and rebuilt prioritising local residents for the new low-cost homes. Four out of five homes are proposed to be for social rent, while the rest would be for low-cost home ownership or rents well below private sector levels.
The plans went on display at a free community fun day which took place at Clem Atlee Community Hall on Saturday (September 24) afternoon.
Andrew Jones, the cabinet member for economic regeneration and development said: “We want to see more homes for local residents, not overseas investors .
“This is why we’d like to see every single one of the 133 homes we want to build genuinely affordable. And the development would provide work for local people.”
A public consultation is taking place, and details will be displayed at the Clem Attlee Community Hall on September 28 and at the Brunswick Club in Haldane Road, Fulham, on October 3.
