Six lucky families will be celebrating a special Christmas this year after moving into a brand new Merlin home.
Three homes in Coalpit Heath and three in Charlton Hayes have been let to new families in the past fortnight. Families have already moved into the three of the four new homes that we’ve built at Bell Road in Coalpit Heath, with a family due to move into the fourth home in the new year. These homes are the first of 72 new homes we’re building across several sites in the village and nearby Iron Acton to replace 44 non-traditional properties which were suffering from issues with damp and draughts.
Work began earlier in the year and these four homes are the first to be completed, but work is well underway on other sites in the two villages. All the homes are due to be completed in phases by the end of 2018.
The homes in Charlton Hayes brings the total number of affordable homes we own at the site to 40. We working with partners Linden Homes and Barratts on the development. Having received the finished homes from Barratts earlier in the week, customers signed their new tenancy agreements today, ready to move in next week.
