William Cubitt Lodge, 30 Pier Street, E14 3HR

William Cubitt Lodge (WCL) was built in 2015 opening its doors to residents in March. It replaces our previous scheme St Johns House on Pier Street which was built by the Isle of Dogs Housing Society around 1974.

There are 21 (sheltered) one bedroom flats which includes 4 adaptable flats for wheelchair users and also houses eight 2 bedroom older persons shared ownership (over 55’s) flats.  WCL is also the first scheme to accept residents younger than the standard criteria of being “over 60”. As long as residents are registered disabled and eligible to qualify for Supporting People payments they can qualify for our sheltered scheme.

WCL is also the first of its kind within Tower Hamlets to offer shared ownership homes for older people.
