THE regenerated Seasprite Close in Northolt has been handed over by The Hill Group of housebuilders.

The 92 homes involved have helped Ealing Council meet its target of delivering 2,500 genuinely affordable homes in the last council term.

Seasprite Close, off Ruislip Road, is the last of 19 developments in the Ealing Small Sites Programme to be completed by Hill.

Homes were provided at no cost to the council, with funds raised through private sales.

Previously comprising three poor-quality, post-war buildings, Seasprite Close has involved close collaboration with existing residents.

Hill and Ealing phased the development to ensure the most vulnerable, who wanted to stay, could remain on site.

Cllr Peter Mason, Ealing Council leader, said: “In April, we smashed our ambitious target of delivering 2,500 homes in just four years.”

“Whilst this is great news, we know there is still much work to do. We’ve now pledged to deliver a further 4,000 new, genuinely affordable homes over the next four years.”

Cllr Lauren Wall, cabinet member for genuinely affordable homes, added: “These beautiful, spacious new homes will offer more families a safe and comfortable roof over their heads.”

Hill has also worked in partnership with Ealing on the award-winning Copley Close in Hanwell, involving 201 homes, a shop, café and management centre, as well as a Brompton bike hire dock.
