Milford Towers

Number of homes under threat: 276

Landlord: Lewisham Council

Ballot Status: Required

276 homes are under threat of demolition in Lewisham’s Milford Towers estate in Catford.

In September 2011, Lewisham Council agreed to redevelop the 276 council homes in Milford Towers along with the Catford Shopping centre (which it sits above) as part of its regeneration plans for Catford Town Centre.

Following the decant of most of the secure tenants the scheme stalled and in 2013 Lewisham signed an agreement with Notting Hill Genesis Housing Association to let the homes out at intermediate rents.

In 2018, further delays saw the Council extend its agreement with Notting Hill until 2024. In July 2018 there were 17 remaining secure tenants, 18 leaseholders, 49 temporary tenants and a total of 191 homes let to Notting Hill, which it in turn is letting to private tenants at intermediate/market rents.

In October 2021, residents marched on the Town Hall in protest at the living conditions on the estate.
