New RHP homes are 'amazing'

New RHP development October 2013
A new RHP development of eight affordable family homes near Hanworth Road, Richmond, was described as ‘amazing’ and ‘life-changing’ by one family of new customers this week.
Iris Mews is made up of three- and four-bedroom homes, all with gardens, off-street parking and fitted with solar panels that will help to keep gas bills low. The development was made possible with funding from London Borough of Richmond upon Thames’ Housing Capital Programme and the Greater London Authority (GLA).
The homes were completed in September and families on Richmond’s housing register were keen to move in immediately. One family spoke to representatives from RHP and Richmond Council this week and the youngest son told RHP Chief Executive, David Done, that he loved his new home: “It’s amazing!”
Geoff Fox, Director of Development at RHP, says: “We’re just as delighted with these new homes as our customers are! With such limited opportunities for new developments in the borough, grant funding means that we can keep rents low and better meet housing need in Richmond.”
Cllr David Marlow, Cabinet Member for Adult Services and Housing, says: “It is wonderful to hear families describing their new homes as ‘life-changing’. This is an excellent high quality, small scale development from RHP which we welcome. The Council will continue to work in partnership with RHP to boost the borough’s affordable housing stock and create homes where people want to live.”
