Celebrating new homes

Friday the 13th during the British summer isn’t the best combination for holding a celebratory event but that’s exactly what Worthing Homes did!

The event was held to celebrate the partnership working that has taken place over the last few years to create a large number of new homes, of which 209 are affordable, on a strategic site in Felpham, Bognor Regis.

The development, which is on land owned by Barratt Homes in Arun District Council’s region, needed a boost after the economy collapsed to enable it to take shape and that’s where Worthing Homes came in. Worthing Homes were able to contribute £30 million to the project, with £8.5m of the monies coming from an HCA grant. Back in July 2011 when the first phases of the development completed Robin Roberts, property services director said: “Worthing Homes is delighted to have played a key role in ‘unlocking’ this site, which had previously stalled in late 2009.”

At the celebratory event on the 13 July we were thrilled to be joined by colleagues from the HCA, Arun District Council, and Barratt’s along with many other colleagues and partners. You can listen to what our guest speakers had to say on the video below.
