RHP Group have chosen Housebuilder, Hill Group after a two-stage tender process to redevelop the 192-home Ham Close estate. The plans are to demolish the existing 1960’s block of flats and replace them with high quality new homes of a variety of tenures.
RHP Group is a housing association, managing around 10,000 homes in West London with plans to build a further 700 homes by 2023. Their decision to partner with Hill comes after they won the joint venture with Poplar Harca to redevelop the 2,500 home Teviot Estate, alongside the 750 home Douglas Bader Park redevelopment with Home Group.
The development will include 143 affordable homes and construction is planned to start by 2022, should planning permission be received. The number of homes being built will be determined following a community consultation this summer.
Tim Willocks, RHP’s executive director of development, said the organisation was attracted to working with Hill due to its experience in successfully delivering complex regeneration projects and the quality of their homes. He said: “Their submission to us showed real knowledge and respect for the architectural character of the area and their landscaping ideas reflect the green surroundings of Ham. We are looking forward to working with Hill to engage with the local community to seek their input into the detailed proposals for Ham Close.”
