Non-traditional housing redevelopment project

A PRC property being knocked down

We’re redeveloping some of our non-traditional  properties to provide modern, energy-efficient homes, fit for the 21st Century.

The properties, which are also known as pre-cast reinforced concrete (PRC) homes, are spread all across South Gloucestershire. The first site to be redeveloped was in Coalpit Heath and the 39 new homes were completed in 2016.

Now we're preparing to start work to transform 44 properties in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton into 72 modern, energy efficient homes. We've appointed Lovell to carry out the work to build the 72 homes in these villages, with work due to get underway in 2017.

We will shortly be applying for permission to redevelop additional properties in Filton and Little Stoke.
