Telford Homes has submitted proposals to redevelop our site at 255-279 Cambridge Heath Road, the former London Electricity Board (LEB) building, for new homes and commercial space.

The building has been vacant for several years and we are committed to delivering a high-quality scheme whilst also respecting the history and setting of the site.

The site has the potential to be regenerated to provide much-needed new homes and commercial space and to make a positive impact on Cambridge Heath Road.

Back in October 2017 we held a Public Exhibition showing our initial plans for redeveloping the site. Since then we have been refining the proposals, considering feedback received from local residents. We have now submitted a planning application to Tower Hamlets Council.
