Residential Scheme in Islington gains Planning Approval

A Burrell Foley Fischer scheme for Islington Council has received Planning consent.  The scheme involves the conversion of disused undercroft garages, beneath the Trefil Walk residential block on the Williamson Estate, into 18 new residential units providing social housing, shared ownership, and private sale accommodation, as well as the refurbishment of the existing community centre.

The conversion of the disused undercroft, in addition to creating much needed affordable housing in the borough, will animate the street frontage at ground floor level and allow for improvements to security for the existing residents above.

A similar Burrell Foley Fischer scheme for Islington Council has recently been completed on the Vulcan Way estate.
