Bath-based housing association and house-builder Curo has started works on-site at Crest Nicholson’s residential development of 250 homes in Keynsham, Hygge Park.
Curo will work alongside the national developer to build 56 homes on a parcel of land at the site, known as the ‘Woodland View at Hygge Park’.
Curo Chief Executive, Victor da Cunha, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Crest at Hygge Park, helping to deliver these much-needed new homes as quickly as possible.
“Curo’s presence on site means local people will have an even wider choice of homes to buy and rent.”
Affordable homes are being built by each of the housebuilders across Hygge Park and will be owned and managed by Curo; they include 6 supported accommodation flats and 4 wheelchair-adapted houses.
In total, there will be 78 new affordable homes – 58 for social rent and 20 for Shared Ownership.
Victor added: “We’re also really pleased to have secured all of the affordable homes on this site, meaning we’ll be able to help even more families on Bath & North East Somerset Council’s housing list to move in to a comfortable, modern and energy efficient home soon.”
Crest Nicholson Managing Director, Darren Dancey, said: “It’s great to be working with Curo at Hygge Park, a beautiful new development in a standout location, with Bath and Bristol right on your doorstep.
“The first residents at Hygge Park have moved in to a Crest home this summer and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more house hunters over the next few months.”
Curo will launch their show home at Woodland View in spring 2020, with the first homeowners expected to move in the new build homes by early summer.
Curo’s Sales Director, Lisa Howells, added: “This is a very popular development in a desirable location and we’ve already started taking early bird plot reservations.
“Home buyers interested in finding out more about our stunning 2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses at Woodland View are invited to give us a call on 0345 140 5050 or email [email protected]”
