First new homes in East Tilbury for housing association
ESSEX housing association, CHP, is delighted to announce that it is to develop over 60 homes in the town of East Tilbury for the first time.
The properties on the Bata Fields development – which are to be built opposite the former Bata Shoe factory following its closure in 2005 – will see CHP acquire and deliver 63 homes.
The properties in Sandpiper Close, Sanderling Close, Turnstone Close and Tilbury Close are all for affordable rent.
Known for being ‘the town that shoes built’ the Bata Shoe Company was the main business in the town of East Tilbury for over 70 years, hence the development’s name of Bata Fields.
It is the first time that the company has developed in East Tilbury despite providing almost 200 homes throughout the Thurrock district since 2002.
Comprising a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom houses, all of the properties will be advertised through Thurrock Council.
Working with Persimmon Homes and employer’s agent, Churchill Hui, the Bata Fields development is due to be completed by October 2017.
The properties – all of which offer allocated parking and large back gardens – have kitchen diners with separate living rooms while the four-bedroom homes have utility rooms and an en-suite bathroom in the master bedroom.
The Bata Fields development is ideal for commuters and families as the A13 is located nearby, along with a train station offering transport links to London and Southend-on-Sea, as well as local schools and amenities.
The company along with its private sales subsidiary, Myriad Homes, is aiming to deliver a further 500 homes, in both urban and rural locations, throughout Essex in 2017 and is offering a range of tenures – from affordable rent to outright private sale – to suit local peoples’ needs.
“Despite the company developing a number of new properties throughout the Thurrock district over the years, this is the first time we have delivered much needed new homes in East Tilbury,” said Carl Hockey, CHP’s Director of Development and Sales.
“At CHP we pride ourselves on providing high-quality homes which is why we are delighted to be able to offer these properties to local people later this year.”
