Magenta Living unveil their latest development to the community
Published by Anne Wilson for Magenta Living in Housing and also in Communities
This month marks the opening of new build properties in Chapelhill Road, Magenta Living’s latest mixed housing development located in the heart of Moreton’s community.
Chapelhill provides brand new affordable housing for 30 families, consisting of 10 two bed houses and 20 two bed apartments, all of which have been allocated to tenants.
The development at Chapelhill Road required the construction of new roads, so Magenta Living turned to children at Sandbrook Primary to come up with brand new street names. The winners were Bria Dodd who named Farmfield Grove and Holly Johnstone, who chose Daybrook.
Sandbrook Primary School had previously enjoyed a visit to Magenta Living’s neighbouring site Sunningdale early last year to learn all about health, safety and building regulations.
Magenta Living’s Chief Executive Brian Simpson said:”We are delighted with the ongoing success of our development programme. The new properties at Chapelhill are the latest homes to be added to our portfolio and I am very proud that, in these difficult financial times, Magenta Living continues to build and develop new homes.”
The latest development scheme cost £2.45 million and all the properties are built to level three code for Sustainable Homes and Lifetime Home Standards, ensuring they can be adapted, if needed in the future.
Construction began on site in September 2012 by contractors Forrest Construction, and was officially launched 15th April.
