The construction of five new affordable homes have been successfully completed in Cheshire Drive for Bournemouth Borough Council.

The Cheshire Drive development consists of five two-bed houses and the development will provide much needed affordable housing in Bournemouth, as well as allowing local people the opportunity to get on the housing ladder through affordable rent.

The Cheshire Drive development is the first time Bournemouth Borough Council have appointed Jones Building Group as key contractors for a new build; work was secured by demonstrating best value through a competitive tender process.

Local subcontractors were appointed for the build so that the economic benefits were accrued to the local area and the carbon footprint was kept low.

On the build, Mark Sheppard, Housing Development Officer at Bournemouth Borough Council said: “The finished build quality was very good.

“The new residents are really happy with their new homes and Jones Building Group were considerate of the Council’s requirements throughout the build with effective site management and considerate working practices.”

Martin Higgins, Project Manager at Jones Building Group, said: “We are delighted to hand over the keys for our first new build housing project as main contractor for Bournemouth Borough Council.

“Our relationship with Bournemouth Borough Council continues to grow and we are looking forward to working in partnership with them on future projects.

“We would like to wish the new residents all the best with their move into the properties.”

The handover comes a week after the site was awarded the ‘Secured by Design’ Gold award for its combination of design and security on the new homes, through physical security and processes.

Bournemouth Borough Council, require all of their new homes to be Secured by Design compliant but in this case extra features have been adopted to obtain the Gold standard award.

Jones Building Group look forward to working with Bournemouth Borough Council and the Team at Secured by Design on future projects.
