John Laing Partnership, the building contractors for London & Quadrant housing association (L&Q), have gone bust.
Building works half finished and planned for the Beaumont Estate, Claude Road, Murchison Road and Whitehouse Estate have been put on hold awaiting new contractors.
L&Q say that they are confident that there will not be any material affect to their building programme overall.
Cllr. Bob Sullivan says: This is a big set back to our local housing needs, we hope that it won’t take too long for L&Q to get started again as we need new housing.
