Galliford Try to develop St Clements

Construction firm Galliford Try has been selected as the preferred developer to build more than 200 homes at the former St Clements hospital site in Mile End, Tower Hamlets. Mayor of London Boris Johnson will this morning announce that the company had been chosen to develop the capital’s first community land trust. The development will see the freehold of the entire site being held in trust for the local community. Some homes will be directly owned by the East London Community Land Trust and residents will be involved in managing the future neighbourhood.
