Raven - 48 new homes for first-time buyers in Merstham

Raven Housing Trust is proud to announce plans to build 48 new homes at Portland Drive in Merstham, Surrey. The first new, high quality, homes will be ready for first-time buyers in Spring 2019.

The existing shops and flats on the site are due to be demolished late summer 2017.

These new homes form part of a wider project to support the regeneration of Merstham and improve the lives of those already living in the community. The sale of these new homes will subsidise further development of more affordable housing for local people. Raven’s newest affordable housing schemes in this area include: Ranmore Close (34 homes), Arbutus Road (7 homes) and Rookery Way (6 homes).

Raven are responding to local housing need in Surrey and Sussex by building 200 new homes a year in a range of tenures including shared ownership, rented homes, temporary accommodation and market sale.

Jonathan Higgs, Raven’s chief executive, said: “The old building at Portland Drive has long outstayed its welcome and we are excited about replacing it with much needed homes that will allow so many people to take their first step on the housing ladder’.
