St Clement's Hospital

The regeneration of the St Clements Hospital site will deliver the UK's first urban Community Land Trust (CLT). A CLT will manage a proportion of the new homes upon completion, while the freehold of the site will be owned by an independent charitable foundation. The site sits within a conservation area and has two listed buildings, so an important aim is to enhance the setting of the listed buildings, while providing much needed housing in Tower Hamlets. The project will deliver up to 250 new homes (35% of which will be affordable) and it is intended that a proportion of commercial/community space will also be provided. The ongoing design process is a genuinely collaborative process, with regular input from the local community. The planning application for the site was submitted in July 2013.
