�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.

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