More affordable housing in New Cross

Finefair has the skills to manage new and old homes, catering for any kind of need. Our flexible services, as well as the high standards we achieve, make us the best for property management Lewisham has. We appreciate that the area attracts many kinds of tenants. Luckily we have a service to suit every single landlord.

Lewisham is very close to Central London and gets a lot of attention as a result. Good transport links and lots of amenities make it popular with commuters. The close proximity to the City and Canary Wharf are especially important.

New Cross is a great area in Lewisham. It has a lot of potential because it is in a fantastic location in the north of the Borough. Housing developer Grainer PLC is looking to take advantage of the opportunities here. They recently revealed new plans to build 300 homes at Besson Street. The project is a partnership with Lewisham Council.

Affordable homes

The main aim of the project is to create more affordable homes. The local council is working hard to make more housing available for social rent. They appreciate how many people currently rent from a private landlord. This kind of tenancy is not as secure as a council house because there are fewer rules and may only have a short term. The quality may also not be appropriate.

The new homes will create more properties for people on low to average incomes who may struggle to rent privately. Additionally, they will serve locals with no chance of getting a council house.

Community facilities

The project will also create some new community facilities in the area. For example there will be a GP surgery, an outdoor gym, a pharmacy and new office space.

Planning permission is currently at the processing stage. It could be secure early in 2019, allowing work to begin on the site.

Finefair appreciates that many investors may want to look at New Cross. Our services are available here and we continue to provide the highest quality property management Lewisham has to offer. If you want to ask us any questions about our services please get in touch.
