Proud to reach milestone for 'considerate' sites

Notting Hill Housing has reached a milestone of registering 100 sites with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, reflecting its desire to be a good neighbour with safe, clean and green sites.

The development at Reynard Mills, Brentford, where Hill Partnership is working as contractor, has the honour of being the 100th site registered with the Scheme.A former BBC industrial yard, Reynard Mills is being replaced with 195 flats and houses, 40 per cent of which will be affordable homes. Work is expected to take three years.

John Hughes, Group Director of Development for Notting Hill Housing, said: “Being part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme is important to us, our customers and those living around our development sites. We are proud to have reached this milestone and want to congratulate Hill at Reynard Mills for being our 100th site registered with the Scheme.”

Cain Peters, Regional Director at Hill, added: “Every housebuilder should aspire to be a good neighbour, and that means engaging with local communities and ensuring their voices are heard. Alongside Notting Hill Housing, we’ve worked closely with local residents and neighbouring schools to minimise the impact of our work and to ensure a safe, tidy and respectful working environment.

“The Considerate Constructors Scheme sets the standard for the industry and it is great to be recognised as a leader in delivering best practice.”

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “Many congratulations to Notting Hill Housing on registering its 100th site with the Considerate Constructors Scheme. This important milestone marks the long-standing commitment that Notting Hill Housing is continuing to make to improve the image of our industry”.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.

Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. For more information on the Code, please click here.

The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.
