Most of our projects are mixed tenure developments. Over the years, we have learned how these schemes work best to enable sustainable urban development – including what homes are built, how they are placed, the facilities and amenities which help to bring residents together and the importance of providing training and employment opportunities within mixed tenure communities.
We build every house within mixed tenure housing to the same high quality and specification, so homes for sale on the open market sit happily next to shared ownership properties, those for rent, and those for key workers. This leads to a more coherent and sustainable community, where everyone can enjoy the same high standards.
Mixed tenure often includes community buildings as well as homes, which we are able to provide thanks to our open market sales. Such is our vast experience and expertise, that we are able to maximise land values. This is key to providing affordable units to residents.
New homes and community buildings combine with all our other service offerings – refurbishment, training, recruitment of a local workforce – to revive communities. Using the latest urban design and architecture, we can help make a bold statement about new beginnings.
By making developments secure by design and by giving them a new infrastructure, we also give communities a new heart. A community can be drawn out of its former circumstances and become an attractive place to live; a place where homes sell on the open market and investment is attracted inwards.
In mixed tenure developments, we consult heavily with residents. It is crucial that they believe in the work we are doing. We give them choices, so they can stamp their own individuality on a development and feel as if they belong.
When it comes to creating mixed tenure neighbourhoods and sustainable community design, Lovell has a vision and a belief that few, if any, can match. This is why we are able to succeed – even in the most challenging areas.
