Chapel – 10 years on

The Chapel estate in Southampton, made up of 174 households, is a flagship development completed by Radian in 2005, comprising a mix of three and four-storey houses and flats. Chapel was a unique development for Radian because we acted as an ‘arms length developer’ for Southampton City Council, which allowed us to apply a number of innovative housing management techniques, including:

  • increasing the number of affordable housing units on offer
  • introducing a Local Lettings policy
  • delivering intensive community development work to create a sustainable and thriving new community

Ten years on, Radian reviewed the success of the Chapel development in partnership with the University of Southampton to see how this unique approach has positively impacted the community and the experiences of those that live there.
