Positive Pre-Application ‘Truly Affordable’ Housing

Positive Pre-Application ‘Truly Affordable’ Housing

Posted by Benedict Spry

The Fleet proposals for ‘truly-affordable housing’ with Client St Joseph’s Hospice were well received during the pre-application process with the London Borough of Hackney.

The Client plans to retain ownership of the properties which will be let significantly below market rates to staff of the hospice and other key workers in the Hackney and local community.

Nigel Harding, CEO of St Joseph’s, acknowledges the mission which led to the establishment of the Mare Street Institution in 1901 with goals of helping the sick and the poor of Hackney and sees a future role for the Hospice in helping to provide decent affordable homes as complementary to the original goals.

A full planning application is proposed in summer 2018.
