Magdalen Gardens & Fawters Close Developments
Affordable Housing Development
Construction has been progressing well on site, and the Contractors are now in their final weeks. The project has run smoothly to date and it has been a very exciting time watching the homes take shape.
The final stages of the work include major ground works on both sites, to create roadways, pathways and parking spaces, along with new fencing being erected. There will also be landscaping works completed, creating flower beds and garden spaces for the new residents.
Both sites have now had their postal addresses confirmed. The former Fawters Close garage site will be named Knights Square. This is in honour of our former Head of Housing Malcolm Knights, who sadly passed away. The properties in Magdalen Gardens will be named Magdalen Terrace, this is to incorporate the new builds with their surrounding neighbours, and reflect the continuation of the terraced properties.
The allocations process will now commence to identify those tenants who are eligible for one of our brand new properties. If you would like any further information regarding this, please contact the housing options team on 01277 312 500.
We are very proud of this achievement, and pleased to deliver the first new build council properties in over 25 years. We are continuing to identify other potential development sites, and look forward to the next exciting project ahead.
