Build London Partnership
What is the Build London Partnership?
Formed in 2018, the Build London Partnership (BLP) is a unique collaboration between L&Q and the Greater London Authority (GLA) with a simple mission - to partner with smaller housing associations; combining our social values and commercial expertise to build affordable homes for hard-to-reach communities.
The BLP is a truly innovative project, developing small, disused, infill and challenging sites across the capital, while supporting our partner’s needs through a dedicated programme of workshops, presentations, and meetings.
We differentiate ourselves from other developers by aiming to empower and upskill each of our partners, helping them to develop affordable housing themselves and better serve the needs of their communities going forward.
Everything we do is driven by the L&Q values.
Below are two short case studies showcasing recent projects.
North London Muslim Housing Association - 256 Church Road
The BLP partnered with North London Muslim Housing Association to guide the team through the development process, which enabled them to expand their portfolio and acquire a new tenure of 100% affordable homes (London Affordable Rent) for the first time.
With just ten new homes, this small project is one of our first completed schemes, alongside 12 more homes at 131-161 Holtwhites Hill and 119-135 Lavender Hill in Enfield.
