    Residents in the Isle of Dogs have voted overwhelmingly in favour of regeneration, following a successful ballot which concluded on 4 December. The proposals to regenerate 24 homes in Bellamy Close and Byng Street were developed together with residents over the last year, with designs that respond to both resident needs and the existing challenging site constraints. The result will deliver an attractive and sustainable new neighbourhood for local residents. The proposal to redevelop the area was backed by 83.9% (26 in favour and 5 against) of eligible residents in One Housing’s first ever ballot. Overall 100% of eligible residents cast their vote.

    The redevelopment will see around 150 new homes, with over 50% affordable housing. The proposed new homes include 14 family size houses and maisonettes and 10 flats, two of which are family sized and built to wheelchair standards. An additional 40 homes will be at GLA London Affordable Rent levels and will be available for applicants on the Tower Hamlets Common Housing Register. A further 18 homes will be available for shared ownership. The remaining homes will be for private sale to help fund the redevelopment.

    We will continue to consult with all the residents to discuss next steps through home visits, their resident steering group and consultation events.
