Affordable Homes Site is Handed Over

August 11, 2014

Pickstock Construction has completed work on an affordable housing site named Wingate Way at Park Hall just outside Oswestry. The site has been built on behalf of Meres and Moses Housing Association, part of the Shropshire Housing Group.

The new site offers 18 quality, affordable homes to local people wanting to rent or buy a property in the area.

Wingate Way is a low density site comprising of two and three bed semi-detached houses and two bed bungalows. 14 homes will be rented out with affordable rates by Meres & Mosses and four homes will be available to buy on a shared ownership basis. The site is perfectly located, situated on a quiet road and backing onto agricultural land, it is perfect for families and the elderly.

Each house has been built to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, therefore each benefit from solar PV panels, water butts and garden sheds as well as being highly insulated.

Julia Brion, Developments Manager for Shropshire Housing Association was one of the representatives at Park Hall to receive the hand over.

Shropshire Housing Group has over 4,500 affordable homes in and around Shropshire.  Wingate Way has been funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government who have pledged to invest £4.5bn through their Affordable Homes Programme.

Bryn Davies, Site Manager for Pickstock Construction commented “It’s been a pleasure working with the team at Meres and Moses Housing Association.” Bryn added “We look forward to hopefully working with them again soon to bring affordable quality homes to Shropshire.”
