Southern Housing Group reveals plans to build new homes in Surrey
Southern Housing Group, one of the largest housing associations in the south east of England, signed agreements for two new residential schemes in the Borough of Runnymede, Surrey.
The Group acquired a site as part of the redevelopment plans for the former Brunel University Runnymede Campus located near Egham. Southern Housing Group will work with Bugler Developments Ltd. to deliver a mix of 36 flats, houses and bungalows for shared ownership. Student accommodation, private sale and extra care homes will be constructed on the rest of the site.
Southern Housing Group has also agreed to purchase a combination of 37 flats and houses, including 10 homes for shared ownership and 27 for affordable rent, from Crest Nicholson in Longcross near Virginia Water. As part of the redevelopment of this former film studio into 200 new homes, the existing train station will be refurbished and a new business park will be built.
Alan Townshend, Group Development Director at Southern Housing Group, said:
“We have strong track-record of building quality homes across a range of tenures in London and the South East and are dedicated to having a positive impact on the areas we work in.
“We already manage 429 homes across Surrey and believe that it has a lot to offer to residents, from beautiful landscapes to attractive market towns, while staying within commuting distance of London.
“We’re delighted to contribute to meeting the thriving demand for quality, modern and affordable homes in Surrey.”
The former Brunel University Runnymede Campus and Longcross projects will respectively complete in 2017 and 2021.
