Greenwich council has approved planning for the new homes, which form part of the government's £500 Local Authority House Building Programme.

The green light has been given for new homes at two sites in Shooters Hill, and on Humbledown Road.

The schemes approved by councillors were seven two bed bungalows in two terraces in Hambledown Road, and three, three bedroom houses in Hervey Road, Shooters Hill.

Councillor Peter Brooks, deputy leader of Greenwich Council, said, "It's great news that we have succeeded in securing planning permission to build more council homes. The new homes in Shooters Hill and Hambledown Road will make an important contribution to the housing needs of local families and helps meet our desire to provide more family homes for larger households.
