62 affordable homes completed
The new housing development at the old Gravel Hill Police Station site has been completed. There are 62 affordable one and two bedroom apartments across three separate blocks; Grayling House, Pipit House and Woodlark House. All properties have now been occupied.
Connor who has recently moved in with his family, said:
"it was definitely worth the wait, we’re buzzing and couldn’t be happier. We’ve moved from the three of us living in just one bedroom, to a spacious two bedroom family home. There is space for the little one to crawl around and she even has her own bedroom, it’s fantastic!"
During the construction, students from neighbouring Montacute School visited Woodlark House, which is the specialised supported housing block. They helped plant a tree and took a tour around the apartments. They also saw one of the finished art pieces, which they had contributed to. These were produced by local artist, Denise Poote and are situated in the communal area of each block.
