More than 160 new homes will be built on the site of an old hospital in Muswell Hill.

Haringey Borough Council’s planning committee unanimously approved the proposals by Hanover Housing Association during a meeting last night.

The housing association plans to build 161 homes on the six acre site of the former St Luke’s Hospital in Woodside Avenue.

Forty-eight of the properties will be affordable homes, whilst 30 units will be co-housing dwellings, and 83 homes will be built for those over 55.

The housing association believes the proposals will enable older people living in Haringey to downsize to smaller properties which are easier and cheaper to maintain.

This will in turn free up family homes for younger families in the borough.

This will be a lovely development when it is finished. Additionally, there will be a cohousing community on the St Luke's site. Cohousing Woodside is a group of people aiming to be each other's future neighbours on a corner of the site, who will know each other in advance, share the garden and some common space and generally help each other out. We welcome interest from people over 50 who might want to check us out - see our website, www.cohousingwoodsid
