Affordable rent homes at the new Aspects development next to Goring-by-Sea station have been formally handed over by developer Burton Property to Worthing Homes.
To mark the occasion, Duncan Jagger, chairman of Worthing Homes’ Development Working Party and Robin Roberts, property services director, met with Burton Property executives Tony Burton, managing director, and Andrew Sinclair, operations director, to view the new homes.
The 11 one and two-bedroom apartments are housed in two architecturally-striking buildings, which provide much needed homes for affordable rent for people in the local area; the first new tenants will move in during July.
Tony Burton said: “We’re very proud of Aspects and the rate at which the homes have sold; it’s a good looking, high quality mixed tenure development which is delivering homes both for sale and for rent. It’s important to us that the quality of the homes we build is consistent irrespective of tenure and that these new homes are now contributing to the affordable housing stock in Goring-by-Sea. I wish the new residents every happiness in their new homes.”
Robin Roberts added: “It has been a pleasure working with Burton Property on this development. We are pleased to have taken handover of these stunning new apartments, which I am sure our residents will be delighted to call home.”
In addition to the affordable homes, 18 three and four-bedroom townhouses were offered for private sale at Aspects under the Government’s Help to Buy scheme. Released in the spring, these proved very popular and all have been reserved, with many already completed and occupied.
