Payne's Way in Weston-super-Mare, a new affordable development from the Alliance Homes Group and Speller Metcalfe
Weston Town Mayor, Councillor Keith Morris, and local stakeholders joined the Alliance Homes Group and construction firm Speller Metcalfe on a celebratory tour of 10 new affordable homes.
Payne's Way, near Westbury Crescent in Weston-super-Mare, is a mixture of bungalows and two-bedroom flats built primarily for people aged 50 and over. The properties are fully wheelchair accessible and have been built to be as energy efficient as possible, with low running costs for the tenants. There is also a communal rooftop terrace accessed by a lift, providing a much-needed space for socialising.
Payne's Way was designed in consultation with North Somerset Council and local residents, and was formerly a brownfield site.
Helen Adams, from the Alliance Homes Group Development team said: "We are really pleased to have been able to put this land to good use. Working in partnership with the local Council and residents has meant that we could ensure these new affordable homes met the needs of the local community."
Matt Brown, Living Direct at Speller Metcalfe, added: "It's fantastic to be here to witness the completion of a project that will have a real, tangible benefit to the local people of Weston-super-Mare. As house prices are rising, it is important that we see more schemes like Payne's Way available to our communities."
