Plans for 50 new homes announced
Raven Housing Trust has announced plans to provide a further 50 affordable homes for local people.
Raven Housing Trust, which manages around 7,000 homes in Surrey and Sussex, will be delivering the properties in a large development area near Billingshurst in West Sussex
“A total of 475 homes will be built on land east of Billingshurst over the next few years and we are pleased to be contributing to this growing community,” said Alison Bennett, Raven’s Development Director.
A consortium of developers is progressing with plans for the site and Raven has entered into contracts with two of these to provide the 50 affordable properties.
Devine Homes are building 52 new properties at a development called Hammonds Mill where Raven will have four houses for shared ownership and five houses for affordable rent.
“We are also working with Bellways who are constructing 149 homes at Amblehurst Green, 36 will be delivered as affordable housing, helping to meet local need,” Alison added.
“These will consist of 17 shared ownership homes and 19 affordable rented houses and flats.
“This will be a great place to live and will feature play areas for children, a nature reserve and extensive landscaping. The first block of rented flats are scheduled for completion in early summer 2019.”
Raven is also about to sign the contract to provide an additional five homes with Bellways on the same site, adding three shared ownership and two rented homes to its portfolio.
