Palm Housing, Coin Street, London

In 1984 residents in Waterloo and north Southwark formed CSCB as a not-for-profit company. This followed years of opposition to various speculative proposals for the area. Coin Street Secondary Housing Co-operative (CSS) – a legally separate housing association – was established to develop housing sites acquired on a 125-year lease from CSCB. CSCB is one of Britain’s most successful community development enterprises, dedicated to building affordable housing and meeting other community needs on its London South Bank site.
