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.

Iron Acton residents learn about development details

Villagers living close to our latest development site have been learning more about how the building work will take place.

We held a consultation session with residents in Iron Acton on Wednesday to give them the chance to find out how we’re planning to demolish 18 properties and build 27 new homes in their place. It was also a chance for residents to meet staff from Lovell, the construction company we’ve appointed to build the homes.

All of the properties we’re redeveloping in Iron Acton were built shortly after the Second World War but have deteriorated in condition in recent years, suffering from issues such as damp and draughts. We’re redeveloping these properties, along with 26 in nearby Coalpit Heath to build a total of 72 new homes across the two villages. Work is due to start shortly and the first homes will be ready is spring 2018.
