Group    From 1926 

Bethnal Green and East London Housing Association / Gateway

Categories: Property, Social Welfare

From British History on-line: "The Bethnal Green and East London Housing Association was formed in 1926 by an Industrial Housing Fellowship Group. It was supported by the Poplar Ruridecanal {sic} Conference and Hackney Council of Social Services and opened its first block of 15 flats, the four-storeyed Queen Margaret Flats designed by Ian Hamilton, in St. Jude's Road. It also built in Hackney and Poplar and by 1934, when it acquired three houses in Bonner Road, had provided nearly 100 homes at low rents."

Registered as a charity in 1961 and amalgamated in 1993 with Victoria Park Housing Association. After a series of mergers changed name to Gateway Homes in 2008.
