Traditionally the East End of London had been an area with strong ties and values, but these were beginning to disappear following the damage caused by the Second World War, both the London County Council and Bethnal Green Metropolitan Borough Council built extensively to rehouse local people. By 1965 the new Tower Hamlets London Borough announced a 10-year housing programme, initially to complete the schemes of the metropolitan boroughs. St Peter’s Close, designed by the GLC, is part of the Avebury East Estate which was completed in 1975. Following the Ronan Point disaster, architects had started to turn away from high-rise buildings and monolithic estates, towards low-rise, high-density developments that more closely followed the original London street pattern.
