WCN Editorial Team 8 Apr 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK house builder Hill has been appointed to build the first homes of the Aylesbury estate regeneration in England, UK by Notting Hill Genesis.

Under the contract worth £70m, Hill will construct 229 new homes on a parcel of land known as ‘Package A’ at the Bradenham Close and Westmoreland Road junction.

Out of the 229 new homes, 84% of the homes will be available for social ret, including 54 extra care units and seven homes for people with learning difficulties.

Package A is part of a wider First Development Site, which is expected to contribute to more than 800 homes, a community facility and public open space and will also provide wide range of job and training opportunities for Southwark residents, including 224 jobs, 98 apprenticeships and 105 training places.

Hill Regional Director Cain Peters said: “We are delighted that Hill has been appointed to work on this exciting regeneration project and look forward to working with Notting Hill Genesis to provide high-quality, affordable homes.”

Notting Hill genesis regeneration and assets group director Jeremy Stibbe said: “Having Hill on board to build our first homes in the Aylesbury neighbourhood is fantastic news. They are highly experienced in regeneration projects that benefit the wider community and the high standards they demand match the vision we have for the area.

“This is a very challenging time for the housing sector and development has slowed in London and beyond, but we retain our commitment to producing the quality new homes so desperately needed in this area and are looking forward to starting construction in the very near future.”

Notting Hill Genesis and Southwark Council are partners in the Aylesbury Estate, South East London. Together, they are committed to deliver a masterplan for 3,500 new homes, half of which are claimed to be affordable. 75% of the affordable homes will be social rented homes and 25% will be shared ownership or shared equity. At least 30% of the homes in all the tenures will have three bedrooms or more.

Construction on the entire regeneration project is expected to be completed by 2036.
