We are delighted to be appointed by Willmott Dixon to deliver two new housing schemes in the Kensington and Chelsea area of London as part of the council’s ambitious New Homes Delivery Programme.
The larger of the two projects is at Kensal Road where Noviun & Willmott Dixon will deliver a £17.1m development to create 38 homes above new ground floor commercial and healthcare accommodation. The five to six storey building is due to be complete in Autumn 2022 and will have private terraces and a podium deck on the first-floor level providing a landscaped community amenity area.
Alongside Kensal Road, we will also be assisting with delivering the £8.5m development at Hewer Street which aims to provide a further 20 homes due to be completed in winter 2022/23.
Cllr Kim Taylor-Smith, Deputy Leader and Lead Member for Housing, said:
“Seeing the first spades in the ground at these sites is an exciting moment in our mission to provide much-needed good-quality homes across our borough, including at least 300 at social rent.
“There’s no single, simple solution to London’s housing crisis and that’s why we have committed to reduce the number of empty homes, push developers to provide more social housing and develop a policy to provide affordable housing for key workers.”
Roger Forsdyke, managing director for Willmott Dixon’s London & South region said:
“We are delighted to be working with Kensington & Chelsea Council on their bold New Homes Delivery Programme, creating much needed homes for local residents and providing a minimum of half for social rent.
“We have a proud history of delivering housing for local authorities across London, through our specialist local supply chain and social value programmes, we are looking forward to the opportunity to generate local prosperity within the community.”
Adam Sanford, SCF Operations Lead, said
“We’re proud that SCF have been able to support Kensington & Chelsea Council in delivering their New Homes Delivery Programme, addressing local housing needs in a sustainable and affordable way, this scheme will be a real asset to the local community.”
