Housing Minister, Mark Prisk met tenants who live at Fizzy Canning Town, a pioneering housing development offering high-quality rented homes with long-term tenancies, on Monday.

Fizzy Living is Thames Valley Housing’s (TVH) private rent business launched in 2012 to provide homes for “rentysomethings”; young professionals in the 25 – 35 age group.

After the visit Mark Prisk said, “I was delighted to visit Fizzy Living and see for myself the high standard of accommodation and service being offered to their tenants.

“I want to encourage more housing associations and investors into the private rented sector, which is why I’ve launched the £200million Build to Rent Fund, and will offer £10bn loan guarantees for new homes specifically for private rent.”

TVH Chief Executive, Geeta Nanda said:  “Through Fizzy we’re delivering homes that meet the needs of aspirational young professionals. We’ll be launching our second development at Epsom Station in the next few weeks and we’re fully focused on finding more sites and providing more homes to fulfil the significant demand for quality rented housing among this group.”
