Stephen Metcalfe, local MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, has congratulated the collaborative efforts of Genesis Housing Group, Logic Homes, and Basildon Council on the completion of a landmark housing development in Pitsea.
The £14 million development in Station Lane is the result of two years of hard work and consists of 121 one and two bed  homes. 56 of these will be of shared ownership, 25 with immediate rent and 40 of general needs.
Stephen Metcalfe MP, who buried a time capsule at the site at the launch of the development, commented: “Over the last two years as I have been out in about in Pitsea I have seen this remarkable transformation take shape week after week. This is a fantastic start to the regeneration of Pitsea and I am sure all new residents will enjoy their time at exciting new development.”
The new homes as well as catering for families and single people, also have special facilities for over 55s. These include level access showers in ground floor apartments, warden alarms and access to mobility scooter parking making this a development for the whole community.
Mr Metcalfe added: “The development has already lifted the appearance of Pitsea. I would like to thank  and congratulate the collaborative efforts of all involved in the development. From Genesis Housing Group to the apprentices from Prospects College, all contributions have been invaluable.
