In 2013 mhs homes commissioned Red Loft to carry out feasibility assessments and negotiations, on their behalf, for a number of proposed housing developments. Red Loft went on to provide consultancy services throughout the process including locating suitable sites and finding innovative access solutions to challenging sites. We also held public consultation sessions with local residents and led negotiations with Medway Council.
We have since achieved planning consent to develop 9 existing garage sites, with 1 application pending appeal, throughout the Medway area, in Kent, to help meet local housing needs.
As many of the existing garages are too small to house modern cars and disused garage sites are known to attract anti-social behavior, the proposed developments will rejuvenate these run-down and under-utilised sites and create up to 52 new homes; a mixture of bungalows, houses and flats as part of the 2015-18 Affordable Housing Programme.
Development is expected to start at the beginning of 2016.
