MP visits regeneration scheme

26 August 2015

An £8 million housing development has been given the seal of approval by Plymouth Sutton and Devonport MP Oliver Colvile.

Mr Colvile paid a visit to residents at River View in Radford, the location of a major regeneration project by leading housing provider Sanctuary Group.

Following the renovation of 192 properties, which included fitting new kitchens, bathrooms and central heating, Sanctuary has converted the former doctors’ surgery into four homes and built a further 21 affordable homes for rent. In addition, through its appointed contractor Galliford Try Partnerships, Sanctuary has constructed a three-storey office block for staff.

This final phase of a near two-year programme to breathe new life into the area has cost £2.7 million, including £500,000 from the Homes and Communities Agency and support from Plymouth City Council.

Mr Colvile said: “I was delighted to meet some of the residents and spend time talking to them about their new homes.

“This new development is a welcome boost for the area and has breathed new life into Radford. The construction works have created numerous jobs and training opportunities, and local people are benefiting from much needed affordable homes.”
