New homes for social rent completed on the Brighton Road
CCHA has completed the 2 year redevelopment of Dillon Court (previously known as Grace Court) situated on Brighton Road, Sutton.
The scheme was officially opened by The Worshipful the Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Jean Crossby and the guest of honour, Brian Dillon from whom the scheme takes its name. We were pleased to have Lord Graham Tope and Councillor Jayne Mccoy in attendance, as well as over 50 guests including residents. The development consist of 39 flats for social rent and 11 one or two bedroom flats for shared ownership.
Some residents who previously resided at Grace Court have opted to move back to Dillon Court, with much interest coming from new residents looking to move in to an independent scheme.
Brian Dillon, who the scheme is named after, said:
“I view this honour as not just a reflection of my time as Chair of the Association but also the personal time and commitment of all the Board members over the years who supported me in the governance of CCHA.
Over that time I like to think we demonstrated our values and commitment to our residents as a local community housing association whilst being open to new ways of providing additional social housing often in the face of difficult funding and regulatory regimes.”
Tracy Cullen, Chief Executive of CCHA said:
“I am extremely pleased with the result. Dillon Court is one of our biggest projects completed to date, providing 50 new homes and encompassing our first shared ownership scheme.
A great deal of work has gone into not only the last 2 years but long before, from the first resident consultation with existing residents. We’d like to say a big thank you to all those who contributed to the scheme and we are proud to say that Dillon Court is now finished.”
