Housing association shows off redevelopment plans
Published by Hywel Lloyd for Merlin Housing Society in Housing and also in Communities
Residents in Iron Acton will have the chance to see Merlin Housing Society's plans to redevelop 16 properties in the village at an event next month.
Merlin is planning to redevelop 16 non-traditional properties in Algars Drive and Chilwood Close and replace them with 23 modern, energy efficient homes. The housing association has already held two events for residents who are currently living in the properties and their neighbours and is now preparing to show the plans to the wider community.
The drop-in session takes place from 4.30pm - 6.30pm on Thursday 10 April in the village hall. Visitors will be able to view the plans and chat with Merlin staff and architects from Quattro Design Architects about the proposed redevelopment.
Project manager Sally Gilbert said: "This is a chance for anyone who's interested in our plans to come along, have a look at them and have their say. We're looking forward to hearing what people think and we'll take everyone's comments into consideration before we draw up the final plans."
Merlin is aiming to demolish the existing properties in spring 2015, before starting building work in 2015. The plans for Iron Acton are part of Merlin's multi-million pound programme to redevelop around 450 non-traditional properties in South Gloucestershire.
