PLANS have been given the green light for nearly 200 space’ homes on land described as an eyesore on the Isle of Dogs. Approval has been given in East London for 189 new dwellings which meet Boris Johnson’s guidelines on space, lighting and family housing

PLANS have been given the green light for nearly 200 'space' homes on land described as 'an eyesore' on the Isle of Dogs.

Approval has been given by Tower Hamlets Council in East London for 189 new dwellings at Island Point in Cubitt Town, which meet London Mayor Boris Johnson's guidelines on space, lighting and family housing.

Most of the development is family housing in open settings.

But where there are apartments, no 'long run' corridors are included. Instead, flats are limited to just six at each level served by lifts.
