Housing, Community, Church & Social Enterprise Development Projects
We have recently completed two cottage-style houses in Kent on land owned by a church partner. Our aim is that some income from the sales of these houses can be recycled into the regeneration of other community facilities and housing already used by the church. There is already a fantastic community thriving in this area and we hope that these houses will help strengthen and sustain this community work.
The Deptford Ragged Trust Project
The Deptford Ragged Trust (TDRT) is a church and community organisation that has been working in Deptford for the past 25 years. They run local events, art projects, TESL courses, a homeless charity (Bench) as well as working with regular stall holders at Deptford Market. TDRT wants to expand its’ facilities to include affordable housing that will help ease some of the need for low-cost housing in Lewisham. Lewisham Council is supportive of the scheme and keen to partner with Jubilee and TDRT to achieve an innovative housing and community solution for the area that is both sustainable and affordable. The project is currently at pre-app stage and we hope to be on site by March 2020.
Woolwich Community Development Project
We completed this development of a church hall and nine flats in May 2018. It was an exciting opportunity to build accommodation alongside a community facility in a popular and and fast-developing London location. The timely project completion and successful sale of the properties allowed some finance to be recycled into Jubilee’s next affordable housing scheme.
