Family Mosaic acquired the two adjacent sites called Stonelea and Thornebury from the NHS in Waltham Forest in 2014 and submitted a planning application in 2015.

Outline planning had originally been approved for 58 units with 14% affordable housing provision, but the sites were bought on the basis of making it a higher density scheme.  Through Alan Camp Architects, Family Mosaic has increased the number of units to 79 and the affordable housing provision to 30%.

Keepmoat regional managing director Dan Germann said: “The aim of this project is to create affordable and high quality homes for rent and shared ownership for people in Waltham Forest, in line with the council’s plans.”

Keepmoat will begin demolition, site clearance and enabling works asap with the build expected to be completed by summer 2018.

Family Mosaic development director Angela Wood said: “Waltham Forest is an area with great opportunities to build new homes and communities. We are glad to be able to play a part in the council’s far reaching plans by developing a scheme that provides a range of tenures and with a great design. We look forward to working with Keepmoat to deliver this scheme.’

Keepmoat’s contract coincides with it being appointed to the new Family Mosaic framework that will provide homes for rent, shared ownership and private sale in four new housing blocks.  Family Mosaic is aiming to build 2,300 homes by 2018.
