Deptford Housing Co-operative was built in 1978 and is a fully mutual ownership co-operative with 138 residencies, mostly for single people in shared houses, but there are also some self contained houses, bedsits and flats. Seven of the properties are leasehold. The co-op has its own office, community centre, shared wireless broadband and computer facilities, car parks and attractive communal gardens.
Located in the north of Lewisham, the co-operative is well placed for travel into central London. Deptford rail and DLR stations are both nearby and many buses pass along the major routes at either end of the nearby High Street. The historic Deptford Market, Greenwich Park and river Thames are all within walking distance.
Deptford Housing Co-operative issues contractual tenancies and accepts direct applications – it keeps its own waiting list and often has availability in its shared accommodation.
DHC was opened with the aim of creating community housing where all residents share the responsibility of its management and organisation. Its street address, Rochdale Way, commemorates the Rochdale Pioneers, a group of ordinary people who founded the world’s first co-operative in the North of England in the 19th century.
