Residents pleased with new homes in Corsham

GreenSquare has recently completed 11 new homes in Corsham, helping to bring much needed affordable housing to the area.

The houses, which are located off Long Close Avenue and Sandy Lea Avenue in Rudloe, have been built on former garage sites. After the garages were demolished, GreenSquare built 11 two-bedroom houses for affordable rent, which residents have recently moved in to.

This week, GreenSquare's chief executive, Howard Toplis, visited Rudloe and met some of the new residents to welcome them to their homes.  

Howard Toplis said: "It was great to have a look round some of the new houses and I was pleased to be able to speak to some of our newest residents, to find out how they've been getting on in their new homes.

“In Wiltshire, like most places across the country, there is a shortage of homes that people can afford to live in, so we're proud to be doing all we can to build good quality homes, like the ones in Rudloe, to address the growing housing crisis.” 

Geraldine moved in to one of the new properties in March and had a chat to Howard about her home (pictured with Howard). She said: “I’m really enjoying it here and am pleased with my new house. I grew up near here and my family lives just up the road, so it’s nice to be able to easily visit them.”

Elsewhere in Corsham, GreenSquare is on site at two former garage sites at Dickens Avenue and Queens Avenue to build a total of 12 new affordable homes.
