Last week we accepted the handover of eight apartments for affordable rent for local people.
The new homes at Broadleaf Place in Caterham have been delivered as part of a larger 42-home development from Shanly Homes.
Working in partnership with Tandridge District Council, all eight homes will be allocated through Tandridge’s housing register and we’re pleased to share that we’ve already began welcoming some of our new residents.
In addition to providing electric vehicle (EV) charging points, the apartments have been designed to reduce the demand for energy through a range of measures. This includes natural ventilation, high levels of insulation, air tightness, the integration of high thermal density materials and energy efficient light fittings.
Solar panels have also been installed to help supply electricity to the communal areas and reduce overall energy costs.
Mark Orosz, Development Manager at Mount Green, said:
“Across high-value areas like Surrey, when it comes to renting, in today’s market, local people are typically priced out of the communities they love and have grown up in.”
“We’re always looking for new opportunities to deliver affordable homes in the areas we already operate in to maintain the most efficient and responsive housing management and maintenance services for residents.
“We’re proud to provide these eight much needed and high-quality flats from Shanly Homes at Broadleaf Place and look forward to welcoming our new residents in the coming weeks.”
Gary Perry, Managing Director at Shanly Homes (Southern) said:
“We are very proud of our development at Broadleaf Place and delighted that we have been able to work with Tandridge District Council and Mount Green to provide 8 homes for affordable rent. We look forward to welcoming the new residents very soon.”
Tandridge District Council’s Chairman of the Housing Committee, Councillor Jeremy Pursehouse, said:
“We are delighted eight, new, affordable rented flats will soon become homes for families on the Council housing register.
Mount Green already has properties in the district and it’s great to see them working towards providing even more affordable housing locally.”
