Case study: Lollard Street social housing

Lollard Street

A Section 106 agreement gave rise to a scheme of housing, a green square and a nursery in London’s Lambeth

New family houses and apartments, a green square and a children’s nursery, all in London’s SE11 postcode: the delivery of a development with these ingredients is incredibly rare in the heart of the capital today.
