Pelham and Waverley Court was acquired by Saxon Weald in early 2016, and as part of this existing 81 unit residential development, under-utilised land has been used to create Alden Court, a development of an additional 21 units. By developing land occupied by existing garages and car parking areas two, three storey residential apartment blocks, linked by a one storey residential building have been provided.
Developing the garage site was complicated due to existing services requiring diversion, the removal of a decommissioned substation and installation of a new dual substation to serve the site. It was also a very tight site which proved challenging in terms of logistics, adjoining owners (Party Wall matters) and access licences. By identifying this parcel of land for Alden Court and carrying out an objective assessment of its under-utilisation, developing this land has proved to be the right decision.
Built to an exacting standard, these 21 contemporary one and two bedroom apartments and bungalows are available to purchase on a shared ownership basis. The size of the units and tenure responds to local-need by providing units that are in the greatest demand for those in housing need. The scheme has also benefitted the wider residential area through extensive hard and soft landscaping to the existing grounds of Pelham & Waverley Courts, including new refuse and cycle stores, block paved parking areas and planting of mature trees and shrubs to uplift the wider site. Through delivering new homes on this infill site, Saxon Weald has contributed to the success of place and community, whilst increasing housing supply and choice for local people.
