Lewisham Council have been awarded £20 million by the Government to build new homes in Catford and Lewisham town centres.

The £20 million grant was awarded by the Housing Infrastructure Fund on 1 February. It will be used to:

  • move the South Circular in Catford, which will provide more land for housing and transform the town centre with new homes, new jobs and new open spaces
  • fund new affordable homes in Lewisham town centre.

Sir Steve Bullock, Mayor of Lewisham, said: ‘We are building 500 new council homes and 2000 new affordable homes in Lewisham to tackle London’s housing crisis and an extra £20 million funding will make a big difference to our work.’
