In April 2022 Real were appointed by Spelthorne Council to build 127 new homes in Ashford. The scheme has been put in place to provide homes for NHS workers, and sits on a former NHS overflow car park, next to Ashford Hospital.
The new housing comes in the form of five family houses, eight three-bedroom apartments, 78 two-bedroom apartments and 36 one-bedroom apartments, each with car parking and amenity space.
Spelthorne Council reached an agreement with Ashford & St Peter’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to acquire the land that made this 100 percent affordable housing scheme possible. New homes will be allocated to key workers as a priority.
Designed with residents in mind, the development offers high-quality landscaped areas to be enjoyed by those that live in the new homes as well as the local community.
The energy efficiency conscious project also includes electric vehicle charging points, air-source heat pumps and brown roofs to help keep energy bills as affordable as possible for residents whilst also reducing the impact on the environment.
