Local residents invited to Jet and Whittle site consultation

GreenSquare is inviting local people to a consultation evening on Monday 12 November, to find out more about its plans for the former Jet and Whittle pub site in Podsmead, Gloucester.

The event, taking place at the ‘Big Local’ hub on Scott Avenue from 3:30pm until 7pm, will give local residents the opportunity to meet with representatives from GreenSquare, Gloucester City Council and Oxbode Housing Association and take a look at the redevelopment proposals.

Eighteen houses are planned for the former pub site, which closed more than four years ago and has since endured a difficult period attracting vandals, thieves and fly tippers who have collectively left the site in a mess. GreenSquare is working in partnership with Gloucester City Council and is hoping that the new homes will be a mixture of affordable houses for rent and houses with a rent-to-buy option.

Kirsty Powell, Development & New Business Manager at GreenSquare, added: “We’re delighted to have purchased this site. We are aiming to build some very attractive, well-designed homes and are keen to involve local residents in the development process. We hope people take the opportunity to come along to the consultation event to share their views, ask any questions and help us to progress and shape the plans we have for the site.”

Jennie Dallimore, City Councillor for Podsmead, commented: “It is fantastic news that work will soon be getting underway on the site. The derelict pub has been an eyesore for a number of years and this new development will not only enhance the look of the local area but provide the neighbourhood with much needed affordable housing.”
