Representatives from GreenSquare, Lioncourt Homes and Stroud District Council have gathered to celebrate the completion of 48 new homes in the village of King's Stanley, near Stroud.

The development, known as Cotswold View, was built by Lioncourt Homes and has a wide range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes built to an award-winning standard and high specifications. 

GreenSquare purchased 15 homes at the site from Lioncourt Homes, under a section 106 agreement, which requires a percentage of new developments to be available for low cost home ownership and affordable rent. 

Howard Toplis, GreenSquare's Chief Executive, said: "By working with Lioncourt Homes, we are pleased to be able to offer a variety of affordable housing options here at King's Stanley. With eight of the properties here shared ownership, and seven for affordable rent, it means more families in the area are able to live in a home they can afford.” 

Colin Cole, Chief Executive for Lioncourt Homes, said: "We are delighted with the success of Cotswold View in Kings Stanley. It is an idyllic village and there is already a great sense of community that exists within this new development. We are pleased to have worked closely with GreenSquare, who take such care with the placement of families to their new homes.”

Howard and Colin were joined by Stroud District Councillor for The Stanleys, Nigel Studdert-Kennedy, at the development, and new resident Nicola Brown, who cut the ribbon to declare the homes officially open. 

Nicola described her three-bedroom house as 'lovely' saying: "I really like living here. They're great houses and I was delighted to move in." 

Nearly all of the homes have now been sold and are occupied, with just one bungalow remaining available.
