Orbit celebrates 5,000-home development milestone

Orbit’s completion of 11 new homes in Kent has brought it one step closer to achieving its target of building 12,000 new homes by 2020. The handover of the 11 shared ownership homes at The Sycamores, in Tonbridge and Malling, marked a significant milestone for the UK’s second largest developing housing association, as it has now delivered a total of 5,000 new homes since April 2013.

Paul High, Orbit's executive director of property investment, said: 

"Coming just over a year after completing on our 3,000th home, this is a fantastic achievement that highlights the acceleration of our sector-leading development programme and the hard work of our teams. As we enter our 50th year in 2017, Orbit is delighted to be offering customers an even wider range of homes across different tenures to suit varying needs and aspirations."
