Work is underway to build ten new homes in Bermondsey’s Welsford Street with added safety measures in place to protect builders from the Coronavirus.
Tooley Street’s housing cabinet member, Leo Pollak, said the site included four two-beds and six hour-bed houses – and would house up to 64 people.
Constructed by Bonds Builders, the new homes will also have a ‘pocket park’ nearby.
Cllr Pollak, (pictured) who visited the site in September, said: “It’s fantastic to see another council homes development site making good progress during these difficult times.”
“These much-needed new council houses will provide high-quality, spacious new homes for local people.
“I’m grateful to the builders for their efforts to stay on track, and the patience of neighbours living by the site.”
