Firm footings for DocklandsPublished Thursday, 7th March 2013
The development includes a sports pitch, community gardens, community centre with youth facilities for the Dockland Settlements Charity and Southwark Youth Services. The scheme provides thirty residential homes for Family Mosaic Housing comprising of four houses, six maisonettes and eighteen flats, including two fully accessible wheelchair maisonettes.
The site provided a tremendous opportunity to secure a sustainable future for one of the borough’s most important charities. The scheme provides high quality mixed tenure housing and enables Southwark to bring back the services it used to offer at the Odessa Street Youth Club. The complex client and end user group, together with the sensitive nature of the site, required extensive public and stakeholder consultation including presentations to local residents’ groups, the Rotherhithe Community Council, ward councillors and executive members, as well as to the Settlements’ own fundraising events
