Homes on the hill

By Natalie Vincent

Four council-level rented modular homes in Streatham Hill will be ready to move into by this summer, according to Lambeth Council.

The local authority had identified a site occupied by dilapidated garages near Hillside Gardens for the homes, as part of its drive to provide council homes for families on its housing list.

The four two-bedroom homes are being delivered with architectural engineering firm Atkins, specialising in homes which are first assembled off-site at a factory.

Work is currently underway to clear and prepare the site, lay the foundations and set up water, gas, electricity and broadband connections; by using this approach, the new homes could be built in as little as 10 weeks.
