Green Pastures' first new build project houses 8 people who were at risk of homelessness in these 6 flats. Since 2009 Green Pastures has collaborated with Greenwich council to allocate tenants to the properties and to provide support where required.
The building has been designed to a high standard providing Code 3 energy efficient homes. This has a significant positive impact on their monthly bills.
We also constructed two 3-bed houses either side of the flats that were sold on the open market.
In partnership with St Marks' Church, Barking, The Berkley Foundation and London Borough of Barking & Dagenham (LBBD) we completed on 59 new homes (Marksgate) in Spring 2016 in one of the most deprived boroughs in England.
56 units are affordable homes provided by LBBD and we retained 3 units that we are using in partnership with St Marks church to house church workers and the needy.
The church also received a brand new facility including a community kitchen & a multi-purpose hall.
In 2013 we purchased a three and a half acre brown field site in West Lancashire. Planning permission for 49 dwellings is expected in Spring 2016. Our aspiration is to provide one new dwelling for every dwelling we purchase off the open market. This development will help us work towards this aspiration.
