CITY HALL is promising to build 350 homes on Transport for London land with half of them marked down as “affordable”.

Sadiq Khan has today earmarked a 1.8 acre site opposite Blackhorse Road station for plans to build approximately 350 new homes by 2022.

The land, which is currently being used as a car park, has been released by TfL to provide more housing in an area facing major redevelopment.

The site is next to several industrial spaces being redeveloped into 1,700 new homes and retail and leisure facilities.

Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, James Murray said: “The Mayor is committed to making sure TfL land is fast-tracked for development, helping to raise revenue and build new homes.

“This site at Blackhorse Road gives us a great chance to build hundreds of homes right near a Tube station, including the genuinely affordable homes Londoners so urgently need.”

Director of Commercial Development for TfL, Graeme Craig said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to transform this site with a joint venture partner into hundreds of new homes for Londoners and vital revenues to reinvest in transport.

“This site is uniquely located at the centre of what is quickly becoming a hub of new residential, leisure, retail and work spaces, expanding pedestrian connectivity and vibrant community activity in the area.”
