MDR are excited to announce the successful planning consent for Lingfield Lodge.

Working with Eldon Homes and Keepmoat, MDR are designing and delivering the much needed redevelopment in the heart of East Grinstead. The scheme will deliver a mixed tenure, extra care facility, including private sale units. The scheme consists of :

  • 49 new extra care homes
  • Full landscaped gardens and communal areas
  • High quality contemporary design that draws references from the local architecture and is harmonious to the context
  • A number of energy saving measures
  • A range of associated services including social hubs, fitness areas, hairdressers, dining and lounge rooms

The project will see the replacement of the current, outdated and vacant retirement home. In its place we will be providing a modern, energy efficient building, sympathetically designed to reflect its surroundings whilst providing some much needed extra care facilities for the elderly.

Pomeroy Completion

MDR successfully achieved planning permission from Lewisham council in 2015 for a new build residential scheme located at 29 Pomeroy Street in Peckham.

MDR’s proposals went through several pre-applications and detailed design reviews before the final scheme comprising 37 one, two and three bed units achieved consent.

MDR visited the site on Thursday (17th November 2017) prior to hand over to Clarion Housing Association by contractors Skillcrown Homes. Skillcrown managed to successfully mange a tricky site to delivery a scheme of excellent quality. The scheme will provide much needed affordable housing provision and occupants are expected to begin moving in Pre-Christmas.

The new occupants will be greeted with superb amenity spaces, high ceilings and easy access to local amenities and main line rail stations. We are delighted with the result.
