Transforming Education Infrastructure Across The UK

Most recently, we have successfully completed a range of both new build and refurbishment projects for The London Borough of Lewisham as part of their Building Schools for the Future programme, as well as a number of new build extensions and standalone buildings for The London Borough of Islington and Essex County Council. We have also considerable experience in the provision and transfer of relocatable units for Essex County Council. With the changes to funding systems, we are now directly involved with schools and colleges in a number of projects.

We are able to provide a complete service from the planning stage, building control applications, design, and construction.

With nearly fifty years’ experience working in colleges, nurseries, primary, infant, and senior schools, Indecon has an appreciation of the special needs and requirements associated with work in this industry sector.

Currently, councils can enforce the inclusion of affordable housing in new developments of 11 homes or more through ‘Section 106’ planning obligations. This ensures that a percentage of housing within larger developments caters to those with lower incomes.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) mandates that private developers allocate at least 10% of units in developments with a minimum of 10 units for affordable housing. However, this percentage can vary based on local authority requirements, often ranging between 20-40%.

Challenges facing social housing include underfunding of affordable housing and homelessness programs, as well as issues with land use and zoning policies contributing to housing segregation. These issues underscore the urgent need for effective solutions in the social housing sector.

Social housing provides more affordable options compared to private renting, offering long-term security and stability for tenants. It plays a crucial role in supporting vulnerable individuals and families who may struggle to afford housing on the open market, fostering inclusive communities.
