Work starts on new Cirencester flats

Work has started on the building of new flats at Leaholme Court in Cirencester.

Planning permission for 44 new rented Bromford homes was granted last November and they are due to be finished in 2022.

The scheme follows similar ones to replace existing affordable housing that was no longer fit for purpose in Cirencester’s Paterson Road, as well as Cross Tree Crescent and Oakley Flats in Kempsford.

Cllr Lisa Spivey, cabinet member for housing and homelessness, said; “In the face of a growing affordability crisis, we are committed to increasing the number of genuinely affordable homes across the district for local people.

“The fundamental role a secure home plays in every aspect of our lives cannot be underestimated; literally everything grows from that space, and for those who find themselves in insecure tenancies or homeless, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to engage positively with the world.

“That’s why we have been working hard with housing providers to deliver on our ambitions to deliver truly affordable housing for local people through a range of regeneration schemes and new affordable housing projects across the Cotswolds.

“It’s brilliant to see developments like these that are not only affordable but also more sustainable than existing housing, benefitting not only our local communities but the environment as well.”
