PHP and C G Fry continue to work closely with Montacute School, a key neighbour to the development, to ensure disruption is minimised to the school's operation. In particular:

The joint access road to the school entrance during the construction of the 6 apartments block


Impact and reduction of ‘noise’ nuisance that could upset some of the pupils 

Agreed level of regular communication with school representatives, on the planning and management of the contractors construction programme

In addition, PHP and C G Fry are working together on community engagement projects, with both Montacute School and residents in nearby homes.

Pupils from Montacute School are now able to view activities on the building site, with the help of viewing panels in the fencing. This helps them to understand and familiarise themselves with activities so close to their School environment.

Students from Montacute School really enjoyed their recent visit to Woodlark House. This is the specialised supported housing block at Canford Heath. They had great fun planting a tree, thoroughly enjoyed their tour around the apartments and couldn’t wait to see one of the finished art pieces by local artist, Denise Poote, which they had contributed to.

Chevy - colour comp winner (2).jpg

Congratulations to Chevy, winner of our colouring competition. Chevy was presented with a £20 shopping voucher from C G Fry and her winning entry will be displayed on the hoarding surrounding the site.

The competition was advertised to young people in nearby homes, to raise awareness of this exciting new development and to acknowledge C G Fry’s Considerate Constructor's “Beyond Compliance” Certificate, following the sites inspection during December. 

We are in discussions with Montacute School about taking part in arts and crafts projects and are looking forward to supporting the pupils with gardening when their new polytunnel arrives later in the year

More details of these and any future community engagement projects  feature in the Residents' Newsletter. This is a regular update advising on the project’s progress and distributed to the neighbouring homes around the development site.

If you do have any queries or concerns, please contact the Project Manager, details on the right of this page.
