Skillcrown wins Rookery Lodge contract with MHS Homes


We are excited to announce that we have secured a contract with MHS Homes to deliver 14 units, including two- and three-bedroom houses and two, over 55s one-bedroom flats at Thatchers Lane, Cliffe, Rochester. The contract was won via a competitive tender process.

“After a delay in site due to nesting birds and bats being present within the building, we are pleased that Rookery Lodge is cleared and work has begun on site”, said Kevin Clark, Land & Business Development Director. “We were delighted to win this contract and look forward to demonstrating our skillset and deliver a successful project in this new partnership”.

The site previously housed a sheltered accommodation scheme operated by MHS, where the residents have now been relocated to Central Rochester. The new scheme will provide a mixture of shared ownership, affordable and market rent houses for the people of Rochester. Higham station, as well as an RSPB Nature reserve is in close proximity of the development. Each house will have a driveway and garden, with parking bays provided for each flat.

Sarah Paxton from MHS Homes comments, “We were impressed with the high quality and work ethic of Skillcrown, demonstrated through their portfolio. I am confident the team will deliver and so far, they have shown great professionalism and efficiency”.
