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.

Residents tuck into afternoon tea

Residents living close to one of our redevelopment sites in Coalpit Heath tucked into tea and cake at a special event last week.

We invited residents in Coalville Road to pop along for some cake on Wednesday afternoon. It was a thank you to them for the inconvenience of having building work taking place in their street. We're demolishing two ranks of garages and building and replacing them with two bungalows and a pair of flats.

The work forms part of the redevelopment of PRC properties in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton. In total we're knocking down 44 properties across several sites in the two villages and building 72 new homes in their place. Our contractors Lovell are carrying out the work for us.

Last week's tea party was one of a three events we're holding for residents living close to the building sites this month. Customer Liaison Officer Sarah Durbin said: "It was a really nice event. Everyone who came along had a lovely time."
