Brenig purchased the land, the site of a bungalow and former plant nursery next to the Shropshire Union Canal, and went through the planning process. We demolished the bungalow and carried out site remediation works, adding roads and sewer systems. The area around the site was relatively built-up, which made planning our deliveries a primary consideration, in order to minimise disruption to neighbours. A key element for Calon is to ensure the community benefits from our success, using local labour, making apprenticeships available and a proportion of profits being used to create affordable housing.
The site has the luxury feel of a private development. The spacious three and four-bedroom family homes are finished to a high spec with open-plan kitchen/dining areas, landscaped gardens and bespoke architectural features that give them a distinctive, contemporary look. The build was begun in November 2020 and is due for completion around Christmas 2021.
