Barratt hands over first affordable homes in Wembley Barratt north london has officially handed over the first three of 35 affordable homes at its Byron Place development in Wembley to Octavia Housing and Care. Byron Place, located in Lancelot Road, has 72 private homes, all of which are now sold, as well as a mixture of affordable homes for rent or shared ownership.

Glyn Hopping, managing director of Barratt North London, says: “We are very pleased to be building such a variety of new homes for Octavia Housing and Care and wish future residents every happiness.”

All the affordable homes, ranging from one and two-bedroom apartments to three and four-bedroom houses, will be built by March and the first residents are due to move into one of the apartments in February.

Grahame Hindes, chief executive officer of Octavia Housing and Care, adds: “We are delighted with the quality and specification of the properties at Byron Place; they address a strong demand for more affordable, well-located homes in the area.”

Wembley is an increasingly desirable place to live, helped enormously by the regeneration around the National Stadium. The local High Street has a good range of shops and there’s a Sainsbury’s supermarket around two miles from the development. Brent Cross, which is about to undergo a massive expansion, has a wide choice of stores and is only five miles away. When it’s time to relax, there are plenty of local parks, Harrow’s Vue cinema has the latest films, while the Wembley Arena plays host to some of the world’s most celebrated performers.
