Raven has contracted with Westridge Construction to build 7 houses for rent on the site of former lock-up garages in Arbutus Road, Reigate.
There will be a terrace of 3 houses, and 2 pairs of semi-detached. During construction UK Power Networks will renovate their electricity sub-station in one corner of the site. The access driveway to the substation will be relocated to fit in with the layout of the new development.
To make best use of the site Raven bought an adjoining parcel of unused land on Box Tree Walk from Reigate and Banstead Council . The enlarged site allows the production of 7 houses rather than 6.
The foundations of the houses should be dug during November 2017, with completion about a year later. All 7 houses have 2 double bedrooms, and are for Affordable Rent.
Initial nominations for these affordable homes will be through Reigate & Banstead Borough Council.
