Community provider adding to Croydon’s housing supply

Eight new homes are being provided in South Croydon after CCHA has completed its latest development.

Simpson Court, located on Pampisford Road, comprises three two-bedroom apartments and five one-bedroom apartments.

Tracy Cullen, chief executive of CCHA, said: “I am incredibly pleased with the results: Simpson Court is not only up to a high standard but has also been completed early, meaning residents can move in sooner.

“It provides eight new homes for affordable rent to support the ever-growing housing needs of the community in Croydon.”

It is the fifth development in a partnership with Orbit Homes, which has so far seen 83 homes built in the Croydon area.

Maggie McCann, development director for Orbit, said: “Committed to helping tackle London’s housing crisis, we are delighted to see the latest homes in our partnership with CCHA come to life.

“By working together, we’re able to deliver more high-quality and affordable new homes for local people.”

Following the completion of Simpson Court, CCHA currently has a further 50 homes in development in Croydon.

The community housing association, which has been operating since 1967, currently manages more than 1,400 homes and has a further 58 in development.

It also manages a further 87 homes for other housing providers. These homes are all general needs, supported accommodation or housing for older persons.
