Second Clapham Park Contract Goes to Wates Living Space
Affordable housing contractor, Wates Living Space, has secured a £9million contract to create 70 new homes as part of the new Deal for Communities (NDC) funded Clapham Park regeneration scheme.
As part of the £9m new build contract, Wates Living Space will demolish existing residential buildings on site in order to deliver two new buildings as part of mixed-use development, comprising 70 apartments, 42 of which are rental properties and 28 shared ownership, with retail units on the ground floor.
It is Wates Living Space’s second contract with Clapham Park Homes, following a £13m new build project to create 41 new apartments, extra care accommodation for 52 people and nine townhouses on the estate.
Ray Gasson, Business Manager for Wates Living Space said: “The Clapham Park Homes Housing Association (HA) is a fantastic example of what can be achieved when residents work together for a common goal. Formerly one of the most neglected estates in the country, the new resident-led HA has enabled people to take responsibility for, and have a real hand in resolving some of the long-standing issues in their homes and community.
