Building homes and communities

Hammersmith & Fulham Council is building brand new affordable homes across the borough. These are homes that help enable the thousands of people in the borough on low incomes to make ends meet.

Our Housing Strategy is delivering the new homes through a range of innovative partnerships with housing associations – an example of the council using its assets to build shared prosperity. 

In addition, our Community Schools Programme is proposing to fund the building of new schools through the sale of homes on redeveloped sites. 

H&F is also working with the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation to provide even more new homes in the borough as part of their development of the site. 

54 new affordable homes have been completed in 2022, with 236 more currently under construction.
