CHP is to launch over 80 high-quality affordable homes in the Thames Gateway region in 2011 after receiving over £2,600,000 in Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) funding.
Built to meet the Communities and Local Governments Code for Sustainable Homes, the 87 properties which will be built in Benfleet, Stanford-Le-Hope and West Thurrock will provide much needed affordable housing to the area.
Developed by Parkfield House Developments and leading estate provider Savills, the town centre regeneration scheme in Stanford-le-Hope – which received £792,000 in funding from the HCA – will provide 18 homes (seven one-bedroom, seven two-bedroom apartments and four studio properties) for affordable rent.
Due for handover in February 2011 the Schoolfield Road development in West Thurrock will see a further 52 affordable homes being constructed after receiving £964,000 in HCA funding.
Working with Barratt Homes and Savills, the scheme will provide 37 properties for discounted rent - six four-bedroom and two five-bedroom homes and 20 two-bedroom and nine one-bedroom apartments. Providing a further 15 dwellings for discounted rent, the development will also feature six three-bedroom homes and nine two-bedroom apartments.
And coming in May 2011 the former Lighthouse pub in Benfleet has been regenerated to provide 17 apartments. The development in London Road – which received over £850,000 in HCA funding – will see 11 two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent and six one-bedroom properties for people with learning difficulties being completed.
David Cotterill, CHP Director of Development, said: “We are delighted to be able to deliver a wide range of new homes in the Thames Gateway region, despite difficult economic conditions. We appreciate the support of our partners in our endeavours.”
