The first tenants have moved into their new homes at Mill Farm Close, Harrow.
Mill Farm Close is currently undergoing a £22 million pound regeneration which will see 158 new homes including the provision of much needed family houses. This includes new homes for Catalyst tenants living on the estate, shared ownership properties and homes for private sale.
LB Harrow Portfolio Holder for Housing Cllr Bob Currie said: “We are working in tough times, where the demand for housing is high and the availability is low, so this is an excellent addition to the borough. Harrow Council has worked closely with the housing association on this development to ensure residents are involved every step of the way. The development is transforming not just the bricks and mortar of the estate, but also helping to build on the great sense of community spirit there.
“As many as seven apprenticeship schemes have been created as part of the building works for local people. This is creating work, opportunities and the chance of future employment for tenants and residents.”
