Southwark council in south London has given the green light to London & Quadrant’s plans to build new homes for Heygate estate residents in Elephant and Castle

Five sites will include just over 160 affordable homes and the housing association is hoping that construction will begin by spring next year. Designs for the Brandon Street site were by architect Metaphorm. S333, Sarah Wigglesworth and Loates-Taylor Shannon will also be carrying out work on the job.
