The first residents at a multi million pound regeneration project in west London have moved into their new affordable homes.
Working alongside Ealing Council and contractors Lovell, Clarion Housing Group has delivered the first 71 social rented homes at its redevelopment at Sherwood Close, Ealing.
This milestone marks the end of the first phase of this major regeneration project, which is transforming a former 1970s estate into a thriving, green neighbourhood of high-quality new homes.
Sherwood Close will address a variety of local housing needs by delivering a mix of apartments, maisonettes and townhouses, ranging from one to four-bedrooms in size.
Work at the scheme got underway in 2016 following extensive consultation with residents and stakeholders.
When complete, the new development will include around 300 high-quality new homes, which will be a mix of affordable and private homes.
Alex Willey, Head of Regeneration Projects for Clarion Housing Group said: “We are really pleased to have reached a major milestone at this important regeneration project in Ealing. Sherwood Close is really important for local families in the area as it will deliver more much needed affordable housing.”
Tony Clements, Executive Director for Place at Ealing Council, said: “It is very exciting to see the first phase of the Sherwood Close development completed and ready for families to move in. Ealing is committed to delivering 2,500 genuinely affordable homes by 2022 and developments like this are key to reaching our target. This development will provide much needed family size homes as well as smaller homes for individuals or couples.”
Sherwood Close is part of Clarion’s wider commitment to invest £2.6bn in its existing estates across the country.
