Lisgar Terrace in West Kensington is an inter-war development built by Southern Housing Group in 1928, currently undergoing a £50m regeneration project.
In 2010, we secured planning permission to upgrade this historic development to redesign homes to modern standards, significantly improve our customers’ living conditions, and increase the total number of homes by 20%.
The redevelopment has been divided into five phases over eight years. Phases one to four are already complete and have provided 154 new affordable homes, the majority of which were offered to existing residents.
We expect to complete Phase 5, which consists of 72 new homes for private sale, in November 2021. Find out more in the Samuel Square private homes for sale information box on the home page.
Social housing providers are under increasing pressure to deliver more homes to help tackle the lack of affordable housing in many areas. It is difficult to compete with private developers to find the right land and opportunities to build so we are maximizing the development potential of our existing estates through our 'Hidden Homes' program. The aim is to regenerate older properties and build new homes on existing land, where we have the capacity to provide them.
