Apple Grove scheme completes
Wed 9 September 2015, 12:36 pm
A seven-year project by housing association Metropolitan to regenerate an estate in Harrow was completed during the summer.
The estate was originally known as Strongbridge Close and featured 108 flats. It has now been expanded in two phases to include 254 homes – a mix of flats and houses for rent and shared ownership.
The scheme is known as Apple Grove and is designated ‘Very Good’ on the EcoHomes environmental rating scheme.
Metropolitan worked in close consultation with Harrow Council and local residents while developing the project – who formed a 'steering group' for decision-making on a range of issues, including property design, building materials and security.
Richard Vining, executive director of development at Metropolitan, said: “The completion of the final phase of regeneration at Apple Grove represents the culmination of years of hard work by Metropolitan, its partners and the estate’s residents.
“As well as creating local employment opportunities, this mixed tenure, sustainable regeneration has delivered high quality new homes and an attractive living environment for the community here.”
