WE recently launched over 60 affordable and shared ownership properties in Hawkwell.
Built on a former paddock and Christmas tree farm, the properties - in Christmas Tree Crescent, Primrose Place and Badgers Walk - are the first homes in Hawkwell for the company and were officially launched by our Chair, Ursula Heelis, and the Chairman of Rochford District Council, Councillor Heather Glynn.
The 62 properties comprise of seven two-bedroom, 38 three-bedroom and five four-bedroom homes for affordable rent as well as nine three-bedroom and three two-bedroom homes for shared ownership.
The development also features three purpose built wheelchair accessible properties which were specified by Rochford District Council during the planning process.
Working with David Wilson Homes and Hawkwell Parish Council, all of the homes have been built to meet the government’s Code for Sustainable Homes, Lifetime Homes and Secure by Design standards.
The development is also located two miles from the local leisure centre and school as well as a bus and a train station.
“This is the first development for us in Hawkwell and it is absolutely lovely, I am sure the residents will be delighted with these highly desirable and much needed homes,” said Ursula Heelis.
“This new development is a new beginning; it is the future for the young people in Hawkwell. We are thrilled to have a company like CHP come along and provide these wonderful homes which are close to the local schools and shops. I have lived in this area for 55 years and I can safely say it is the start of a new period here in Hawkwell,” Councillor Heather Glynn commented.
Carl Hockey, Development and Regeneration manager, added: “At a time of government cuts we’re overjoyed to be able to continue to help meet local people’s housing needs in the Rochford District.”
