In the last five years, we’ve built 254 homes across west London. We plan to build 357 more before 2022.
Our homes and developments have a community focus. Homes are of mixed tenure, including for social rent and shared ownership. They understand what residents need, and appreciate the history of the area – even down to their names.
We’re also building community facilities and commercial units, benefitting local people and businesses. In all our developments, we’re committed to investing in the community – and our business has won awards for our home-building.
“SBHG is one of our premier partners in helping us deliver affordable social housing in the borough,” said Hounslow council leader, Cllr Steve Curran. “It’s heartening to see we can have a real impact to help change people’s lives for the better. SBHG always deliver on development. They work with us and make it happen for local people.”
Anglers Retreat, West Drayton
The development has so far provided 14 affordable homes, all constructed to the Passivhaus Standard. The homes are a mix of one- and two-bedroom flats and two three-bedroom houses, with associated private gardens, 1:1 car parking spaces, and communal amenity space. There is also a large area to the rear of the development, which will eventually become the wild meadow, and will be accessible to the residents.
A separate planning application has been submitted for another two affordable homes – a two-bedroom and a three-bedroom flat. If approved, these homes will be built to Code 4.
New England Pub, Brentford
The mixture of one-, two- and three-bedroom flats have recently been completed and are in the process of being handed over to residents. 15 are available for affordable rent, while the other five are available for shared ownership.
16 The Vale, Acton
Local authority: London Borough of Ealing
Number of homes: 39
We have recently acquired a new site in Acton. The building is an empty Art Deco-style warehouse, and we plan to build a mix of tenures (including some for private sale).
Acton Square, Acton
This is a S106 scheme with Bellway Homes, which will provide 17 homes for affordable rent (in block A) and 13 homes for shared ownership (in block B). The homes will be a mix of one- and two-bedroom flats, including 4 wheelchair-accessible flats in Block B. There will also be associated balconies and communal amenity space.
Bedfont Lane, Feltham
Bedfont Lane consists of two blocks (A and B), which will provide a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom flats with some on-site parking spaces and communal amenity space.
Block A (adjacent to Bedfont Lane) is a thermally enhanced building, which will therefore be more energy efficient. Block B is being built to Code 4.
Maple House, Feltham
Maple House will bring a mixture of one-, two- and three-bedroom flats to the community. Five of these flats will be available for shared ownership, while the remaining 12 will be for affordable rent.
Our residents say...
Caroline Huntingford lives in one of our new homes in Calverton Place, Horsenden.
“I had a stroke and had to move out of my upstairs flat. This place was a saviour – I started to cry when I saw it. I was so overwhelmed. This place is massive. I have enough space to get my wheelchair around it. It really suits my needs. It’s nice to be by the ‘countryside’. It is quiet around here. There are a couple of local shops. The staff were really helpful when I moved in.”
We work with Octavia Housing and Origin Housing as Connected.
Together, we’ve delivered 2600 homes since 2005 and in 2014 we were allocated over £18 million in the Mayor’s Housing Covenant to build 718 more.
In a joint statement, Connected's chief executives said: “This allocation means we can build more homes that are truly affordable in some of the most expensive areas of the capital, creating truly inclusive communities.”
