A new development of 16 affordable homes in Northfleet, Kent, has been officially opened by MP for Gravesham, Adam Holloway. He was joined at the opening ceremony on 22 June by the Mayor of Gravesham, Lyn Milner, members of the project team and councillors from Gravesham and Dartford Borough Council.
De Warren House is the first collaboration between Denne, part of the Leadbitter Group, and Gravesend Churches Housing Association (GCHA). It includes ten one-bedroom and four two-bedroom flats as well as two ground floor apartments built especially for wheelchair users.
GCHA manages over 550 homes in Gravesham, Dartford and Maidstone and provides general needs homes as well as supported housing for young people and purpose-built housing for people with learning and physical disabilities. Denne won the contract after completing a number of successful schemes with Town and Country Housing Group, a project partner of GCHA.
The development, which started in May 2011, involved the demolition of an apartment block and the construction of the three-storey timber frame building, which meets Code for Sustainable Homes level 3. The apartments have been finished to a very high standard, with fitted kitchens and bathrooms, and a lift serving all floors.
Graham Brown, Managing Director of Denne said: “We are delighted to finish this, our first project for Gravesend Churches Housing Association. The scheme is another example of Denne’s commitment to delivering high quality, affordable housing for our clients across the south east.”
GCHA chief executive, Veronica Mabey said "we are extremely pleased to be officially opening our first new build scheme for over 10 years. This is the first stage of planned operational growth which will see our stock increase by 10% over the next few years."
