More than 22,000 new homes in the capital have been given the green light this year, despite the unprecedented disruption to the property market caused by the coronavirus lockdown. Even in April and May, the most restricted period of the year, 4,618 homes received planning permission. Among a flurry of projects still up for evaluation is a scheme from London Square Partners and One Housing to redevelop Lea Bridge station and create 300 new homes. Meanwhile, those seeking to acquire an East End home a little sooner can look at Oxbow, a 132-home development within walking distance of Canary Wharf within the Aberfeldy regeneration zone in Poplar. Studios, one- and two-bed apartments at the site’s two buildings went on sale this week, starting from £351,000.
