�49 million Stratford homes ready for families

Over a hundred new homes were unveiled in Stratford last week as part of a new housing scheme worth �49 million.

Rick Roberts Way, a mixed tenure scheme off of Stratford High Street, comprises a total of 173 properties.

One Housing Group, who delivered the scheme with construction group Galliford Try, says Rick Roberts Way is offering 37 affordable rented properties, 111 private sale, and 25 shared ownership homes.

The community also features seven commercial units, private landscaped gardens, a children’s play area, and a 60 space basement car park.

Launching the scheme on April 4, Newham Mayor Sir Robin Wales said: “This exciting new development at Rick Roberts Way will help working families get into top-notch housing during the current tough economic climate.

“Newham is leading the country when it comes to housing - our plans for social housing allocations will help to drive aspirations and form a stable community where people choose to live, work, and stay.”

Mick Sweeney, group chief executive at One Housing Group, said: “The scheme will create much needed family homes in London including 21 three bedroom and 11 four bedroom homes.

“The scheme will also help those wanting to purchase an affordable home with one bedroom homes starting from �185,000 to three bedroom homes from �299,950.”

The Rick Roberts way buildings were also designed to be eco-friendly with a gas-fired communal heating system and ten per cent of the energy requirements from renewable sources.

Other economical features include water saving taps, showers, and toilets, enhanced thermal insulation, rainwater attentuation, passive ventilation, sustainable materials, and energy efficient lighting.
