Goldingham Close is an affordable housing development in the heart of Uley for Severn Vale Housing and Gloucestershire Housing Rural Association. This piece of land is classed as a ‘rural exception site’ meaning the land would not normally be used for housing but an exception was made due to the need stated in the Housing Need Survey. This helps to accommodate households who are either current residents or have an existing family or employment connection.
The development consists of the following:
- 4 x one-bedroom flats
- 2 x two-bedroom semi-detached houses
- 1 x detached three-bedroom house
Goldingham Close was designed to comply with the DDA and HCA requirements, as well as being compliant under Part M of the Building Regulations (2004). This means that the homes meet the needs of the different occupants and can be changed over time depending on the tenant’s needs.
Due to the previous nature of the site and the fact it is a rural exception site the existing trees and hedgerows were retained. As well as this the development was landscaped with new shrubs and trees to enhance the surrounding area.
Work on site commenced in Summer 2014 and was completed and handed over in Spring 2015.
