The development comprises fifty affordable homes designed and built for Home Group Housing Association at 332 Northolt Road.
One of the homes in the project represents the 1000th affordable home to be built in Harrow since April 2010. The Mayor of Harrow and representatives of the Council were there along with Home Group, Clearview Homes and their architect, Dipa Joshi of Assael Architects.
In a short speech the Mayor praised the high level of co-operation required of Clearview Homes, Architect Dipa Joshi, Home Group, and Harrow’s Planning Officers to bring this innovative project to fruition.
The development brings the total number of affordable homes built in the borough since 2010 to 1011.
Cllr Currie said: “I am very proud we have been able to build 1,000 affordable homes in Harrow in three years.”
At Northolt Road , the affordable homes have been designed and built to meet the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and include solar cells on the roof, which is covered by sedum plants. They are also Lifetime Homes and Secure by Design compliant. The development includes provision of 42 cycle racks and links to public transport.
