Hainault

NEW HOMES FOR BEXLEY

On the site of a former care home in Erith, our Hainault proposal is our first project for BexleyCo. The design provides 17 new family homes and a Supported Living building with 8 bespoke apartments.

The design celebrates the verdant character of the suburban area with the plan designed around retaining high quality mature trees and creating a strong frontage to the main street. Retaining and enhancing the ecological value of the site was a key driver and a thorough understanding of the levels across the site means the new homes sit comfortably in their environment, respectful of neighbours.

Stitch was first engaged by BexleyCo in 2019 to optimise the capacity on the site and successfully generated a masterplan delivering more homes than initial capacity studies predicted.

Unanimous planning approval was granted in January 2020 and Stitch will be producing tender stage drawings for construction to start later this year.
