Hammersmith & Fulham: New developments set to transform housing provision in the borough

Hammersmith & Fulham: New developments set to transform housing provision in the boroughHammersmith & Fulham (H&F) Council has outlined plans to build new homes in the borough.

The properties will be built in Ravenscourt Park, as part of a scheme to supply family houses in the area.

In addition to the creation of seven homes, the council will also be building three rental properties which will be offered to some of the council tenants who used to live in the now-vacant Elizabeth Finn House building on the site.

Houses which are not taken up by tenants will be put up for sale at about a quarter of their open market value.

The council are working in conjunction with developer First Base in order to construct the homes. At least 40 per cent of the homes built in Ravenscourt Park will be affordable and offered to local people first.

Commenting on the developments, councillor Andrew Johnson, H&F cabinet member for housing, said: "This is yet another example of the work we are doing to secure new homes for hardworking people on modest and middle incomes.

“And, in addition to providing much-needed affordable family homes on under-utilised land, the council and First Base have been able to offer some newly-built properties to former council tenants who had previously expressed an interest in returning to that part of the borough.”

A public consultation has been carried out on the project and local residents have been given the opportunity to select architects to work on the scheme.

Kate Ives, development director at First Base, said that the project is already proving popular among residents.

She said: "The Ashchurch Villas scheme presents a unique opportunity to develop large spacious family homes in a popular Central London location.

“Demand is already high and we look forward to delivering these in partnership with H&F.”

In addition, the council has launched its own new build programme which will see underused bin stores, pram sheds and garages on council estate land converted into flats.

These apartments would then be sold at a fraction of the market rate.
