We were delighted to meet with Watford Community Housing Group last week to sign contracts and discuss the imminent Ground Breaking plans for our scheme of 16 new apartments at Park Avenue in Bushey.
Gareth Lewis, Director of Partnerships for Watford Community Housing Trust said:
"We are thrilled to be working with Mears New Homes on this exciting new development in Bushey, which will provide much-needed shared ownership opportunities for people looking to get on the housing ladder. We are committed to delivering new homes across a range of tenures, to help people access housing that meets their requirements. This new partnership with Mears will be a continuation of the great work we’re doing at our joint venture elsewhere in Watford, and we’re confident that this first new development in Hertsmere will pave the way for more modern, attractive and affordable homes for the benefit of the people in the wider Hertfordshire area.”
Tony Biddiscombe, Land and New Business Director for Mears New Homes said:
"It has been fantastic to see this project secured and for it to be efficiently converted from a 100% market sale scheme in to an affordable tenure, in what is an extremely competitive market. Being able to offer our clients the flexibility of both contracting and development services is key to our success and future growth. We are delighted to be partnered with Watford Community Housing Trust to deliver a mixture of both types of project within the Trust's core operational area"
