Two housing co-operatives are working together to create a phased programme to create more affordable homes with modern standards.
The first site will replace three houses currently used as temporary housing with a new block, to provide more affordable rented and permanent rehousing for residents of short-life properties.
On a nearby site, Wellington Hosuing Co-op own several poor-quality short life homes, initially earmarked for demolition for a road widening scheme. These houses are currently leased and managed by Middlesex Housing Co-op, who will rehouse some of the residents in first scheme, so this site can be redeveloped to provide additional homes.
Better quality buildings will reduce aircraft and road traffic noise. Higher levels of insulation and efficient heating will address fuel poverty. Increasing the number of homes available for rent will enable more new residents, including those nominated by Hounslow Council, to move into intentionally supportive co-operative communities.
