New affordable homes in Brasted Close

Closing date 26 November 2021

We are very excited that we now have the 11 permanently and genuinely affordable homes are under construction at Brasted Close. This is a London Community Land Trust initiative made possible with funding from the GLA and land from an old garage site owned by the Council. These will be available for purchase well below the market rate and allocated to those with a housing need and preference will be given to those local to Sydenham. The closing date for applications is the 26 November 2021.

Construction is underway on six new council homes on Silverdale and five will begin next year on Elderton Road. Every new council home will go to some of the thousands of families on the Council’s waiting list who are often in temporary accommodation or paying eye-watering rents in the private rented sector.
