Housing association Orbit has signed a deal with developers for the construction of 220 homes in a village.
It has partnered with Maidstone-based Chartway Group to develop the homes on a site in Ulcombe Road, Headcorn.
Due for completion in 2023, the £65million development will offer 132 homes from Chartway’s residential brand, Westerhill Homes.
It will include a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes. Orbit will deliver 88 affordable homes – 55 for rent and 33 for shared ownership, including six bungalows.
Ian Savage, CEO at Chartway Group said: ‘’This is a key development in our partnership with Obit and will offer a huge range of choice for home buyers. Headcorn is a village close to our
headquarters and we’re looking forward to starting on site and building quality new homes with the latest in modern technology and energy efficiency.”
Clive Astall, land and new business director at Orbit said: “We are looking forward to working with Chartway Group to build the new homes and jointly sell those for market sale. They have the potential to generate £7m for Orbit to reinvest in the
continued provision of affordable homes in the future.”
With detailed planning, construction on site will start at the end of the summer after ecology enabling works are complete.
