Around 75 new council homes could be built on the site of garages and parking spaces on the St Saviour's Estate in Bermondsey under plans being considered by Southwark's regeneration boss.

The council estimates that it could build 42 homes next to Woodville House (at the corner of Grange Walk and Maltby Street) and 33 homes next to St Vincent House (off Fendall Street).

A report prepared by council officers for Cllr Mark Williams, the cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, notes that the tenants' and residents' association "raised serious concerns about the impact of the loss of parking" when it was consulted on the proposals in the summer.

Cllr Williams admitted earlier this year that Southwark won't meet its target of building 1,500 new council homes by 2018.
