We’re no longer considering demolition of homes on the Foxhill estate. We’re now working in partnership with local residents to create a new plan focused on significant investment in the refurbishment of Curo-owned homes over the next few years.
We’ll finish this programme of refurbishment works by March 2024.
We held three events in January 2019 about the refurbishment ideas we’ve developed.
We’re reviewing the feedback we received from residents and are putting together a final refurbishment programme which we’ll share with in late spring.
Find out more about our refurbishment ideas for your area in our February update:
- Bradford Park houses and bungalows, Bradford Road, Down Avenue, Hawthorn Grove, Quantocks bungalows, 102-124 Queens Drive, Quantocks flats
- Foxhill House and the Cornish homes in Queens Drive, Kewstoke Road and Sedgemoor Road
- Selworthy House and Dunster House
Bradford Park flats
We’re bringing forward the refurbishment of Bradford Park flats as the first phase of our wider refurbishment programme in Foxhill.
We’ve developed refurbishment options based on our SHAW (Safe, Healthy, Affordable, Warm) standards and with input from residents.
We’re improving the roof, windows, ventilation and walls to make the flats warm and dry. We’re also improving the communal areas and parking.
Site investigations, March 2019
Our contractors Enzygo are doing site investigations around Bradford Park flats for one week from Monday 11 March. Their site investigations will include trial pits so they can study the condition of the ground before we start construction works in the summer.
Enzygo will excavate, record and photograph and then backfill the trial pits. No pits will be left open. They will lift some paving slabs to do the work and put them back after backfilling the pits.
Enzygo will start work at 8am and should be finished by 5pm each day. Their excavation works will not be noisy.
