CONCORDE CLOSE

Over 100 council and housing association estates across London are under threat of demolition. Our research shows where they are.

Concorde Close

Number of homes under threat: 43

Landlord: Home Group

43 homes are under threat on the Concorde Close estate in Hounslow. The estate is owned and managed by housing association Home Group which had previously had its application for redevelopment of the estate refused by Hounslow’s planning committee in January 2019.

Home Group now claims that it is undertaking a full review of the scheme and revising its options as follows:

Home Group commissioned an options appraisal study for the estate by BNP Paribas, which claims that the homes on the estate have a negative NPV (Net Present Value) - i.e. the estimated cost of maintenance over the next 30 years exceeds the projected rental income.

But the figure includes £2m of costs associated with a separate cost appraisal report commissioned by Arcus and effectively double counts these costs in its own estimate (see appendix 7 of the BNP Paribas report).
