Our Normansfield Avenue development reaches new heights
Work to use a redundant Richmond Council owned site in Hampton Wick to provide a state of the art, residential care home and affordable housing development has reached a major milestone with the buildings now ready for final fit out.
The site will be the new location of Silver Birches, a residential care home with 10 people with learning disabilities which is relocating from Marchmont Road. The remainder of the site will also provide 19 low cost rented homes that includes a five-bedroom shared house for supported living.
Tim Willcocks, Executive Director of Development at RHP said: “We’re delighted to be bringing these much-needed affordable homes to the Hampton Wick area. Due to the rich mixture of tenures within the development we’re excited to see the vibrant community that thrives there.
Through effective partnership working with the Council, Bugler and Fitzroy it’s allowed us to make good time on this build of high quality homes.”
RHP has again worked successfully with Richmond Council to deliver another high quality affordable housing development.
Cllr Liz Jaeger, Cabinet Member for Housing said: “One hundred per cent of the residential properties developed on this site are affordable and will be let to those living in the Borough who most need low cost rent housing.
We are determined to identify more opportunities for affordable housing development, working, as we have here, with our partner housing associations to provide housing schemes for our local residents built to a standard which we and our communities can be proud of.”
We expect to welcome new residents to their home around early summer next year.
