Construction is nearly finished on the first of 72 new affordable homes we're building in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton.
We're building the new homes across several sites in the two villages, to replace 44 old properties whose condition had deteriorated since they were built more than 60 years ago.
Work on the first homes began earlier this year and now the four new homes on the first site in Coalpit Heath are nearing completion, ready for the first residents to move in. Elsewhere in the village, homes are at various stages of construction, with roofs already on all the homes on two sites, while work is well underway on two further sites and on two sites in Iron Acton.
Development Manager Noreen Twomey said: “We’re delighted with the progress that’s been made so far. The homes are really starting to take shape and it won’t be long before the first customers are moving in.”
All the homes are due to be completed in phases from late 2017 to the end of 2018, with the first homes on track to be finished at the end of this year. These are the latest homes we've built in the village, following the completion of 39 new homes in 2016.
Most of these new homes will be available to rent through South Gloucestershire Council’s choice-based lettings system, Homechoice. Five homes will be available to buy through shared ownership. Find out more about shared ownership homes with us.
