Despite us building almost 200 properties in the Thurrock district over the years we’ve never developed any in East Tilbury – until now.
The properties on the Bata Fields development, which are being built opposite the former Bata Shoe factory following its closure in 2005, will see us acquire and deliver 63 homes for affordable rent.
Known for being ‘the town that shoes built’ the Bata Shoe Company was the main business in the town of East Tilbury for over 70 years, hence the development name of Bata Fields.
Working with Persimmon Homes and employer’s agent, Churchill Hui, development is due to be completed by October 2017 and comprises a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom houses.
Advertised via Thurrock Council, the properties - all of which offer allocated parking and large back gardens - have kitchen diners with separate living rooms while the four-bedroom homes have utility rooms and an en-suite bathroom in the master bedroom.
This year we’re (along with our private sales subsidiary, Myriad Homes) aiming to deliver a further 500 homes in urban and rural locations across Essex as well as offer a range of tenures – from affordable rent to outright private sale – to suit local people’s needs.
“Despite the company developing a number of new properties throughout the Thurrock district over the years, this is the first time we have delivered much needed new homes in East Tilbury,” said Carl Hockey, Director of Development and Sales.
“At CHP we pride ourselves on providing high-quality homes which is why we are delighted to be able to offer these properties to local people later this year.”
