Over the last 20 years we have designed and developed in the region of 400 New homes in conjunction with Orbit Housing Association in the East Sussex area – helping them to deliver much needed affordable housing in the local community, with a planned 150 more homes in the pipeline.
We are proud to be associated with them and will be working closely with them in the future. Current shared developments include Archery Road, St Leonards and Fellows Road, Hastings, where there will be an exciting mixture of Privately owned, Shared Ownership and Rented properties from our joint ventures. Also a new Gemselect built development in Frederick Road, Hastings solely for customers of Orbit Housing Association.
Extract from Hastings and St Leonards Housing Strategy 2016 - 2019– Hastings Borough Council 2016
“We are working hard to improve existing housing and to enable the delivery of new housing in Hastings and St Leonards. We are putting significant efforts into regenerating the most deprived areas of the town to improve the quality of life for local residents and the community as a whole; Hastings Borough Council is committed to there being a decent home for everyone. Hastings has been acutely affected by the economic difficulties of the recession. Changes to government housing policy and legislation has had a significant impact on local residents and introduced new challenges for future housing policy locally. Too many of our local residents are living in poverty. Poor housing conditions and increasing housing costs exacerbate this issue. We will continue to work in partnership to ensure people in Hastings and St Leonards can access and maintain accommodation that is suitable for their needs. With increasing pressures on local services and declining resources it is even more important to develop strategies and joint initiatives with partners that will address the housing issues affecting people living and working in Hastings. We will strive to secure the necessary resources to achieve our objectives and give active support to initiatives that will benefit the community and address housing issues for those in most need. This strategy will give us the platform on which to achieve our future housing ambitions”
Good News for Orbit Housing with Gemselect!
