We are currently working with our partner,
Peabody, to develop new and improved housing and facilities on the
western edge of the Silchester Estate. The work is planned to
take place in two phases and will provide new homes for rent,
shared ownership and sale on the open market.
The first phase started on site in March 2013.
It involves developing new housing, a community facility and a
new retail unit on the part of the Silchester Estate currently
occupied by garages and the Latymer Children’s Centre and
improvements to the ground floor of Frinstead House.
Peabody has appointed a contractor, Mace, to carry out the work.
Mace will be providing regular updates to residents about up and
The main structure has now been built and the picture shows
Jeremy Stibble from Peabody and Warren Alexander-Pye from Mace at
the "topping out". Mace are now working on the interior.
The second phase will involve the demolition of 1 – 27 (odd)
Shalfleet Drive to allow additional new homes to be built.
Improvements to the green area between Frinstead House and Markland
House are also being developed.
