Joseph Lancaster

Leathermarket CBS has recently received confirmation of funding and planning permission for its second development of new, community-led, social-rent homes on the Lawson Estate. The plans for 40 new homes, including 34 flats and 6 mews houses, were developed through a community-led design process with Lawson tenants and residents and Bell Phillips Architects. Lawson Estate Tenants & Residents Association (TRA) worked to refine the plans for the Joseph Lancaster nursery site from the earliest stages of the design. As a result, the new homes and landscaping plans are designed to meet the needs of existing residents on the Estate and in the Leathermarket JMB area. Construction is expected to start on site in Spring 2019.

Please see below for the most recent resident newsletters on the Lawson Estate, which provide progress updates on the work leading up to construction.
