Well done to Ruth Schamroth and team at North London Sustainable Housing Partnership for inspiring the recent acquisition by Hanover Housing Association of the former Saint Luke’s hospital site in Muswell Hill (see www.hanover.org.uk/cohousing-group-inspires-a326m-deal-for-st-lukes-site-in-muswell-hill. MHSG supports Ruth who says “we believe that this will be good for the local community. Hanover is a not-for-profit organisation and is aiming for a sympathetic development which will be relatively low in density and will preserve many of the best features of the site, including the listed buildings fronting on to Woodside Avenue and the historic gardens on the site. It will be a long-term provider of housing on the site. It will preserve a pedestrian right of way through the site but will make sure that there is no vehicular traffic through the development. We are confident that Hanover will consult fully with local residents and interest groups. We are also pleased that this will give us a chance to establish one of London’s first cohousing communities here in Muswell Hill. Hanover is keen to promote cohousing and is working with several other groups in London”
