We have redeveloped a number of derelict garage sites and unused pieces of land in Trowbridge. These areas attracted vandalism and other forms of anti-social behaviour. The new properties have not only provided much needed new homes but tidied up these areas immensely.

Halsall Construction was the contractor for the College estate, the areas redeveloped included College Road, Beech Grove, Larch Grove, Chestnut Grove and Maple Grove and were a mixture of houses and bungalows. All properties were completed in November 2012.
CJ Deighton & Co was the contractor for the Studley Green estate, the areas redeveloped included Lambrok Close, Sheridan Gardens and Summerleaze and were a mixture of houses and apartments. All properties were completed in December 2012.
The new homes have been built to Code for Sustainable Homes level 3, which includes increased insulation to improve energy performance ratings and have solar panels to assist with their hot water. All properties were for affordable rent and advertised through Homes 4 Wiltshire.
Prospect Place, Trowbridge
Prospect Place, Trowbridge was a major development for us. It has 49 homes, is close to a conservation area and forms a key gateway into Trowbridge town centre.
These homes included a mix of family sized houses and apartments. All of the homes are let at affordable rents. 41 homes are let at social rents, and eight apartments will be let at an intermediate rent targeting key workers and those in employment but on low incomes who would not ordinarily qualify for social housing.
The development was finally completed in May 2011, there was a delay as the orginal contractor went into administration.
The design of the homes is of a high standard and the homes were built to CSH3 (which means they are highly efficient and use renewable energy such as solar panels for heating hot water) and they also included Lifetime Homes features.
We jointly funded this development with the Homes & Communities Agency.
