Notting Hill Battersea Reach
Wandsworth’s housing spokesman, Councillor Paul Ellis, has welcomed the unveiling of 27 shared ownership homes as part of the latest addition to the Battersea Reach development next to Wandsworth Bridge.
Flotilla House is made up of 80 units, with eight one-bed apartments and 19 two-bed apartments available on a shared ownership basis.
All of these low cost homes were secured as part of the planning conditions agreed between the council and developer, and future phases of the development will deliver even more affordable housing units – up to a total of 330 flats.
The riverside housing, which has been built by developer St George Ltd with Notting Hill Housing as registered provider, has already seen the construction of 38 social rent properties.
Of these homes, 26 have been allocated to tenants on the council’s housing waiting list, with the remaining 12 going to previously homeless housing applicants – which in turn opened up existing properties in the borough to others in need of housing.
