Islington Council invites suitable expressions of interest from suppliers for the construction of 24 new-build dwellings and associated structures at Harvist Estate, and for the re-development of Citizen Road.
Current status / Background
Islington’s vision for housing as laid down in the Housing Strategy is to make sure everyone in Islington has a place to live that is affordable, decent and secure. Secure and affordable housing is recognised as an enabler. Housing has an important role in shaping healthy places, preventing ill health, supporting residents into work and tackling child poverty.
Since 2010 Islington has delivered over 1800 new affordable homes. Over the next four years Islington aims to build another 2000 affordable homes in the borough of which 1500 of these should be for social rent, including 500 new council homes.
This contract is for the construction of twenty-four new dwellings, designed and built to the highest energy standards, ensuring these homes are cheaper to run. The floor plans will comply with Lifetime Homes Standards ensuring that these homes will serve residents throughout their lives by allowing them to stay within their homes irrespective, in the main, of any changes to their mobility.
