Miller Homes and Platform Housing Group have reached a deal to provide 24 homes for social rent, 10 for affordable rent and 6 for shared ownership.
Work has already begun on the site with a small number of the affordable options being available in the next few months. The site is due to be fully finished by March 2025.
Kate Ellison, Director of Land, Partnerships and Business Development said,
“This agreement with our partners at Miller Homes means we are able to bring more affordable housing to the area and get more people a place they can call home. It’s agreements like this that contribute to our ambition to keep building homes and delivering the housing requirements our local authority partners desperately need. I want to say thanks to the team at Miller Homes and our land team, and in the meantime, we’ll continue to explore more ways we can work together with others to provide solutions to the housing crisis.””
Darren Humphreys, Managing Director at Miller Homes West Midlands said:
“We are delighted to work alongside Platform Housing Group to bring affordable new homes to Kenilworth. In this desirable location property prices can often be prohibitive so we are thrilled to be able to offer 40 of the 99 properties on our Southcrest Rise development as affordable homes. With many of our homes featuring solar panels, all properties are ultra energy-efficient which means residents will benefit from lower energy bills too. We look forward to welcoming the first residents to this brand new community very soon.”
