Hounslow Homes has agreed a development partnership deal with Lovell and United House/A2 Dominion Housing Group. The partners were chosen following competitive tender to deliver Hounslow Homes’s aspiration for 1,000 new affordable homes in the Borough.
The first project, a £7.5 m scheme in Convent Way where Hounslow Homes is the landlord, was completed in December 2010. 49 houses and flats were built in partnership with Lovell. The first phase of the project delivered 15 affordable rented house and 4 shared ownership houses. The rented homes are all 3 and 4 beds and will help relieve local overcrowding in the Borough.
The regeneration of Convent Way involved the demolition of existing two storey car parks. In total, 19 affordable units were provided, including 15 family sized homes for affordable rent and 4 flats for affordable low cost home ownership.
