Housing for people with learning disabilities in Leytonstone will be available for tenants to move into from March 2017, according to Newlon Housing Trust, which is developing the scheme.
The scheme will provide 10 homes for rent and two for shared ownership. Designed by MEPK architects, it will feature homes that exceed the mayor of London’s “space standard”. Each will have a private balcony or terrace, wet room, carpets throughout and assistive technology.
Other features include space for social events, a landscaped garden with allotment and accommodation for on-site staff to provide support to residents.
Newlon Housing Trust will work with the council on tenant referrals.
The two shared ownership properties will be available to individuals who have long-term disabilities. There will be a one bedroom and a two-bedroom flat.
