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.

We've now started work to redevelop 44 properties and a rank of garages at several sites in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton and replacing them with 72, modern, energy efficient homes. Work is due to be completed in phases during 2018.

We've also applied for permission to redevelop ten properties in Little Stoke and replace them with 15 new homes.

Scaffolding comes down on first new homes in Coalpit Heath

Our development of 39 new homes in Coalpit Heath has reached an important milestone as scaffolding has been taken down on the first few properties.

With the external work completed on the first five homes, attention is now focussing on fitting all of the internal components. At the same time, the other properties on the two sites in the village are continuing to take shape.

We're aiming to complete work on all the homes by summer 2016.

The 39 properties are the first homes we're building as part of the non-traditional housing redevelopment project. We're due to start work on another 72 properties in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton next year, as we move towards our Business Plan goal of developing 300 properties a year every year by 2019.

The film below shows the progress of the development to date.
