Rydon was appointed to a £9.5m contract by Town & Country Housing Group for a development of 82 mixed-tenure family homes near Gravesend, Kent. 

Dykes Pitt is a new development containing 46 three and four-storey apartments, 34 two and three-storey terraced houses as well as two bungalows with disabled access. The scheme was built on a 1.1 hectare piece of disused brownfield land.

The new homes were available through Town & Country Housing Group under shared ownership or affordable rent. Each property features private outdoor space, parking, in addition to communal public areas. 

The site is located in Northfleet, just 1.5 miles from Gravesend town centre and just a mile from Ebbsfleet international train station. 

Designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3, all homes incorporate solar panels to all roofs within the development. They are constructed with a traditional brick and tiled roof, designed to blend in with the surrounding Victorian houses and townscape.
