Henley and Optivo get green light for residential development in Tulse Hill

Henley Construct, a division of Henley Homes Group, has received planning permission from the London Borough of Lambeth to deliver 45 apartments in Tulse Hill for housing association Optivo.

Designed by Tigg Coll Architects, the development will offer one-, two-, and three-bedroom affordable homes with landscaping, amenity areas, disabled parking, cycle parking, and refuse and recycling stores.

The residential scheme will be located on a 0.36-acre site, replacing two houses and a commercial unit for a car wash business, for which demolition works are due to start immediately.

Henley Construct will deliver the scheme using modern methods of construction and materials that it claims will significantly enhance the character and appearance of the area. 

Aaron Usmani, director of construction at Henley Construct, said: “The homes that sit on this site currently are in a poor state of repair, with alterations detracting from their original forms, so we look forward to bringing back quality homes to this area of Tulse Hill and providing much needed affordable homes for the borough. 

“This project has been a collaborative effort by the design, commercial, land, and construction team at Henley, and is a result of tremendous hard work and tenacity, as we strive to deliver high quality schemes. 

“Quality and detail are critically important to us — people deserve high quality housing, regardless of whether they are renting or buying.”

Richard White, director of land and new business at Optivo, commented: “This development will be a positive addition to the area, and we’re really proud to be part of it.  

“We've a proven track record of delivering high quality homes and we remain ambitious, with plans to start 7,000 homes by 2025.  

“At Optivo, we’re determined to do our bit to tackle the housing crisis, and look forward to giving residents the keys to their new home in the near future."
