New Swan Homes (NSH) has sought a regeneration project to rescue the former Old Church Hospital site in Romford, Essex. The project sought to revive and modernise the town centre as well as providing low carbon and energy efficient homes through the use of Wetherby’s Epsitec system.
NSH’s development comes after a decade of regeneration work in Romford town centre. The Old Church site was originally a workhouse for the union and was built in 1838; in 1930 the poor law union was abolished and it became the Old Church County Hospital. This was later closed in 2006 and services were transferred to the new Queens Hospital. Since the 2006 closure, the building has been derelict and was seen as a great opportunity to provide much-needed high-quality housing for the local community.
We have 369 units of accommodation within walking distance of Romford town centre. The accommodation is fully furnished and ranges from studio and one bedroom flats to shared (bedsit) accommodation.
