One Housing, a London-based housing association, has partnered with Mount Anvil to deliver 202 new homes, 94 of which will be affordable, as part of the Bellamy Close and Byng Street estate regeneration.
One Housing and Mount Anvil have worked closely with local residents to develop the planning proposals, undertaking wider community engagement, ultimately redesigning the original scheme following the residents’ feedback. The new proposals will now include a housing mix ranging from two, three, four and five bedroom family houses and apartments with either private roof terraces, balconies or gardens, providing a mixture of social rent, shared ownership and private homes. One Housing’s 24 existing households have been offered a new home within the new development.
Mike Johnson, group director of development at One Housing, comments: “With the ongoing shortage of good quality affordable homes in London, we’re pleased to announce our latest housing delivery partnership with Mount Anvil. Together, we’re listening to residents each step of the way and we’re focused on ensuring this project also benefits to the wider local community and economy in the area. The new homes, once complete, will also meet energy efficiency standards to lower our carbon footprint and residents’ fuel bills.”
Killian Hurley, chief executive of Mount Anvil, adds: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with One Housing again. We’ve worked closely with the Bellamy Close and Byng Street community for their valued input and we’re looking forward to creating a scheme that both One Housing and their residents can be proud of.”
Mount Anvil aims to commence demolition works in Q3/Q4 this year, subject to planning and vacant possession.
