17 households have now moved into the second block to be built in the new development and we’ve had really positive feedback from most residents to date.
We’ve reviewed the construction programme for Block 3 with Ardmore and the handovers for the rest of the block will be later than originally anticipated.
Although the work to the new homes is progressing well, there is still further work to be done over the next few months. Works to the new road (that runs alongside the Venture Centre) have been delayed and although the new homes will be ready, we need to ensure that the entrances are sufficiently accessible.
Learning from our experiences to date, we also want to improve our handover process and make sure that residents’ new homes are ready for them to move into, with minimal disruption afterwards.
We contacted all of the affected residents before Christmas to tell them about the likely timescales for their moves and to see if they needed any support over the next few months. Once we confirm move dates, we’ll also be able to arrange preview visits for residents to see their new homes.
