Work has begun on the construction of 30 new affordable homes in the heart of Staple Hill.
Last year we received planning permission to redevelop our former supported housing scheme at Irving Close and a rank of garages in nearby James Road into 30 new homes. Work has now started with the demolition of the garages in preparation for the five new homes that are being built on that site.
Next month Merlin will demolish the buildings at Irving Close. The 30 new homes will be completed in June 2017 and will be a mixture of rental and shared ownership.
