Skillcrown secures new build contract in Greenhithe


After securing a detailed planning consent for 53 units in October 2014, Skillcrown Homes have been in detailed discussions with Orbit Housing who were extremely keen to add the scheme to their 2015-18 programme.

With numerous title defects and large ongoing service charge issues to deal with, Skillcrown and Orbit worked very closely to overcome all the issues and exchanged contracts in February with completion taking place late March.

The scheme is set to provide a healthy mix of affordable rent and shared ownership housing and is earmarked for a March 2017 completion.

Land & Business Development Director Kevin Clark said  “Having never worked with Orbit Housing before, I am delighted to have secured such an extensive project with them and I am looking forward to working with them on many more projects in the future”.
