Mulalley have just completed a £38 million four-year programme of internal decent home refurbishment in partnership with Phoenix Community Housing to homes in Lewisham and are about to embark on a further £35 million pound external works programme.
The tulip tree was planted in the communal garden of Millcroft House, the first block of homes to receive improvements. It was chosen as it produces beautiful yellow tulip shaped flowers in the spring, which will give pleasure to current and future generations of residents.
Bruce Benson Operations Director at Mulalley said ‘We are extremely pleased to continue our successful partnership with Phoenix Community Housing. Millcoft House is our first scheme under these works where we will be carrying external improvement works.
‘The tree planting was a great way to mark the beginning of this programme and good opportunity for the project team to meet and chat to residents.’
Mary Bennell, Director of Asset Management, Phoenix Community Housing, said ‘We have come a long way in meeting our promises to our residents but there are still challenges ahead.
‘We have great strength in our partnership with Mulalley and will work closely with them and our residents to ensure that we continue to improve their homes’
