Thirteen new council homes will be built at Camberwell’s Sedgmoor Place after gaining planning approval this month.
The new scheme includes four one-bed homes, six two-beds, and three homes with three bedrooms.
The new housing is designed by Levitt Bernstein and all will be allocated to secure tenancies at council rent.
Half the properties will be offered to local residents in need.
The homes will also benefit from bicycle storage.
Southwark Council’s Leo Pollak, the cabinet member responsible for new council homes, said: “With over 20,000 people on our housing waiting list, we are now accelerating our push to 11,000 new council homes, with new permissions coming in thick and fast.
“I am very pleased that we have secured planning approval for thirteen more light, spacious new council homes on Sedgmoor Place, and I look forward to seeing diggers in the ground and keys handed over to local families.”
