Cotswolds housing regeneration
By Richard Wright | 12th August 2021
A former sheltered housing scheme in Gloucestershire is being turned into 18 new homes for 'social rent' in a regeneration project.
Site clearance work is now under way at a regeneration scheme at Chamberlayne Close in Stow-on-the-Wold.
The scheme involves demolishing 16 homes (15 flats and 1 warden's house) and building 18 energy efficient homes for social rent. They should be completed by August next year.
Developers Bromford, which in June was announced as the top builder of social rent homes by Inside Housing magazine in its Biggest Builders 2021 survey, is working in partnership with local construction company E G Carter.
Clearance of the site and demolition is now underway for the next few weeks. Construction work is due to begin in October.
Chamberlayne House was formerly sheltered housing but it was identified under the Sheltered Housing Review as a scheme that was 'no longer fit for purpose' for the elderly residents and had a poor energy efficiency rating.
Emma Flood, regeneration project manager for Bromford, said: "This is a great opportunity for us to regenerate the block and bring huge benefits to our customers and the wider community. By demolishing the existing homes and replacing them with modern, energy efficient homes, they will be affordable for our customers to run and meet their needs for the future."
Mathew Vye, associate director at E G Carter & Co Ltd, said "We are delighted to be working with Bromford to re-develop this site in Stow-on-the-Wold to provide much needed affordable homes to the area.
"We look forward to completing this site in 2022 and continuing to work collaboratively with Bromford as part of the Construction Partnership to deliver even more new homes throughout Gloucestershire and the Southwest of England."
