Mark Prisk Fizzy Living
The housing minister, Mark Prisk, met tenants living at Thames Valley Housing's (TVH) 'Fizzy' Canning Town project - a development offering high-quality rented homes with long-term tenancies.
'Fizzy Living' is TVH's private rented business to provide homes for 'rentysomethings' - young professionals in the 25-35 age group.
Mr Prisk said he was delighted to visit the scheme and praised the "high standard of accommodation and service being offered to their tenants".
The minister said: "I want to encourage more housing associations and investors into the private rented sector, which is why I've launched the £200million Build to Rent Fund, and will offer £10bn loan guarantees for new homes specifically for private rent."
TVH's chief executive, Geeta Nanda, said: "Through Fizzy we’re delivering homes that meet the needs of aspirational young professionals. We’ll be launching our second development at Epsom Station in the next few weeks and we’re fully focused on finding more sites and providing more homes to fulfil the significant demand for quality rented housing among this group."
