- Got support from Community-led Housing London (https://www.communityledhousing.london/) to develop the project
- Appointed a client lead – Dan Hill – to work with our staff and board
- Started working with other partners to establish the project, including the Greater London Authority who are the Hall’s freeholders (https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/housing-and-land)
- Completed a Community and Housing Needs Survey
- Held our first public meeting
- Held our first Advisory Group meeting
- Held our second Advisory Group meeting looking at early approaches and options for the site
- Held our ‘Footprint workshop’ looking at project aims and sustainability
- Held our third Advisory Group meeting looking at early approaches and options for the site
- Held an options workshop with our board members
- Had meetings with Britannia Village General Management Company Board, Greater London Authority and other stakeholders
- Agreed with our board to submit a preferred approach to Newham Council for discussion
2021 – We developed an early scheme and financial model and appointed a professional team to move the project forward. We received support from the Community Led Housing team and also held a number of public meetings and advisory group meetings as well as meetings with other stakeholders. We received support and secured funding from the GLA for the next phase of the work.
2022 – We developed the design and viability of the project and decided that the best delivery route would be to partner with a Housing Association who would bring on board a developer and who would manage the flats once built and leave us to manage the community centre. We also discussed the project with Newham planning department and submitted two planning pre-applications to the council. We also held some further community drop in sessions. We continued to keep our stakeholders updated and started working on amending the leases. Towards the end of the year we sent out a tender asking for a development partner who was interested in working with us on this project
2023 – We found a development partner and are in the process of formally appointing them. They are a Housing Association with a similar ethos to us and we believe they will be a good partner and a benefit to the project. We received some further funding from the GLA and have received confirmation from them that once we are able to move the scheme forward further we will receive some more funding.
