Mercury Land Holdings prepare for the construction of 44 high-quality homes in the heart of Hornchurch.

Last week, Councillor Roger Ramsey, Leader of Havering Council, with Kevin McGrath and Ken Frakes from the Bugler Group, and Garry Green, the Director of Mercury Land Holdings, visited the soon-to-be construction site in Hornchurch to finalise preparations.

The new development, which will be next to Queens Theatre and 5 minutes’ walk to Emerson Park station, will be completed in the autumn 2019.

The development will deliver 44 private rental properties with a mix of one and two bedrooms with high specifications units and associated parking. The properties will provide much needed housing in the borough and marketing will be targeted towards local residents.

The development will add to the successful portfolio of Mercury Land Holdings which includes Cathedral Court, a 65 home private rental scheme in the centre of Romford.

Councillor Roger Ramsey, said: “With housing demand in the capital at an all-time high, it’s a really positive statement that so much new high - quality housing is being built for the local people of Havering.

“Mercury has more exciting plans for future schemes and this when coupled with all our regeneration plans across the borough shows that we are keen to ensure our housing demand is met with high-quality, affordable and accessible homes.”

Andy Bugler Chief Executive of the Bugler Group said; “We are delighted to partner with Mercury Land Holdings to deliver this prestigious development. This partnership is the first we have secured in the London Borough of Havering and we look forward to supporting the growth ambitions of Mercury Land in creating much needed new family homes in the Borough.”
