Ex-England Captain Involved In Helping Build 1,000 New Homes
Many of you will have heard of Rio Ferdinand the ex-professional footballer who has played for a number of clubs including Manchester United as well as captaining England. Well, he also set up The Legacy Foundation along with a couple of other footballers – Bobby Zamora of Brighton and Mark Noble of West Ham United that is involved in building social housing and other property development such as sports facilities.
It has recently been announced that Legacy is to be involved with Central Bedfordshire Council and Aviva Investors in the building of more than 1,000 new homes in Kingsland that is an area of Houghton Regis. Unfortunately, Kingsland is one of the 20% most deprived areas of the United Kingdom so it is hoped that this property development scheme will be a big help to the area.
There will be affordable, residential property built that can be both rented out privately as well as being available for purchase plus social housing so it sounds like there will be a great deal of choice for the community. There will be starter homes available enabling first time buyers to get on the housing ladder and people that are employed in the locality will have the opportunity to live in a local property.
It is the intention that Legacy will also become involved in other property development projects around the UK in the future.
We are sure that you will agree such a property development scheme is to be welcomed and let us hope that more of them are constructed over the years to help people living in deprived areas. Such schemes will go some way towards providing much needed housing in this country.
If you are a property developer interested in providing housing and require finance then why not get in touch with us so that we can introduce you to a specialist broker who can discuss your property development finance requirements and, hopefully, help source a suitable lending package.
