Cumbrian Way regenerated and now open24th March 2015
A modern, flexible and vibrant development at Cumbrian Way in Millbrook is now completed and fully occupied. The development was officially opened on Friday, 13 March.
Previously the site hosted just 10 maisonettes; six council homes and four private leasehold. The Estate Regeneration programme has succeeded in delivering a further 40, much needed, homes for Millbrook families.
50 new homes and a new convenience store have replaced the former shopping parade, following £787,000 grant from the Homes and Communities Agency and £40,421 from PUSH (The Partnership for Urban South Hampshire). The mixed use site contains 16 homes for private sale and 34 affordable homes.
Housing Association Radian and constructors Drew Smith delivered the scheme ahead of schedule.
The Estate Regeneration scheme has benefitted the community in other ways too, providing improvements to the infrastructure layout, including the introduction of ‘Billy and Belinda’ bollards, to provide a safe route to school via the Boardwalk, and a new one-way/’home zone’ road design has been implemented on Helvellyn Road.
Councillor Warwick Payne, Cabinet Member for Housing and Sustainability, said: “This development is a wonderful example of how we can work with our communities to provide solutions that meet their needs. This sensibly designed scheme has been considerately delivered by our partners to provide real benefits, with excellent housing, new shopping and safe routes for our children.”
