Residents of Park View Farm, Sedlescombe joined us to celebrate the completion of the development of the new homes for local residents.
A vandalised garage site in Sedlescombe has been transformed by AmicusHorizon who opened eight new homes on the site last week.
Residents of Park View Farm, Sedlescombe joined staff from AmicusHorizon to celebrate the completion of the development of the new homes for local residents.
The homes, which include three 1 bedroom apartments, four 2 bedroom houses and a wheelchair accessible bungalow, are built on a historically problematic garage site that was prone to vandalism.
Tom Casey, Senior Project Manager for AmicusHorizon said: "We’re really pleased to put this land to better use and provide quality, rural homes for the residents of Sedlescombe."
Around 40 residents, staff and representatives from Rother District Council and Sedlescombe Parish Council were on site for the official opening. AmicusHorizon Sussex Regional Director, Angela Prickett thanked the local residents and all those involved in the completion of the project. New Park View Farm resident, Kayleigh Moss cut the ribbon and officially opened the site.
Kayleigh (22) shares one of the two bedroom homes with her partner and one year old daughter, she’s delighted with her new home: "We moved into our home in July and it’s lovely. The AmicusHorizon staff have been great too."
Park View Farm also became temporary residence to two royal pythons and a number of other creatures, thanks to animal handling company ‘JawsnClaws’, who joined in the celebrations. The residents had fun handling the snakes, frogs and tortoises but were reassured they’d all be going back to their own homes!
Representatives from local building contractors Westridge, who were used by AmicusHorizon for the development, also attended the launch event. Westridge were able to give work opportunities to four local apprentices throughout the project.
This development was part funded by the Homes and Communities Agency. For more information about future AmicusHorizon development projects please visit their website: www.amicushorizon.org.uk
