Peabody and Mount Anvil partner up in Hammersmith & Fulham

Peabody and Mount Anvil have joined forces for a second time to deliver new homes at Watermeadow Court in Hammersmith & Fulham. Read more below.

The 1.3-acre site was granted planning permission in 2019 for 218 new homes, of which only 36 would have been affordable. Now, Mount Anvil and Peabody will work together with to revise the planning permission and increase the number of affordable homes to 50%, delivering much needed housing for the Borough.

Dick Mortimer, Director of Development and Sales at Peabody  said: “We currently own and manage over 2,100 affordable homes in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and we’re delighted to be partnering with Mount Anvil to deliver more affordable housing here. Watermeadow Court will join a pipeline of new homes in the Borough, with recent and linked commitments at Edith Summerskill House and the former BBC Television Centre.”

“Our affordable homes at Watermeadow Court will continue a legacy of inclusive places designed for all to use, promoting equality, diversity and social cohesion through mixed and balanced communities and tenure blind design.” 

"We are pleased to be working on our second joint venture partnership with Mount Anvil in three years. Together these partnerships will deliver over 500 much needed homes in London.”

Killian Hurley, CEO of Mount Anvil adds: “We believe public and private partnerships achieve the best results for Londoners – which is why we’re committed to delivering 50% affordable housing across our developments and have the support of a pioneering financial partnership with the GLA to do so.” 

“We also share a vision with Peabody to create inclusive communities, designed to promote wellbeing and social cohesion, so we’re extremely pleased to be working with them again. Together, we’re upping the number of high quality, affordable homes that Watermeadow Court delivers for the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, and creating another outstanding place for Londoners to thrive.”
