This enabled the owners to subdivide the property and sell the newly-created surplus section to the Trust.
We have since received consent to build two semi-detached homes on this site, with the intention of offering them as affordable transition housing. The move marks an additional direction for the Trust, which generally focuses on dealing with deferred maintenance issues for homeowners.
The construction work of the new homes is ticking along with the team hard at work, laying carpet, painting and landscaping the section.
A number of our sponsors are assisting with the project including Carters, NME Electrical, Metalcraft Roofing, and Dulux.
The end is in sight with the build to be complete by April 2021.
