18 affordable homes, which is 16 more than the original planning consent three years ago, are now complete and occupied.
Those involved in the project held an official handover ceremony to celebrate the new homes.
Tony Murray, Housing Director at Magna Housing, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer these homes to local families who need them. The demand was high, which shows we are providing the right homes in the right place.”
Duncan Harvey, Housing Development Manager at Sedgemoor District Council, said: “As a Council we have a huge housing challenge trying to help the ever-growing numbers of people seeking our help to simply find somewhere to live. Projects like helps us rise this challenge. These houses will form part of Sedgemoor’s housing programme which will help us to meet the ever increasing demand for housing locally.”
David Eccles, Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Hinkley Point C for EDF Energy said “HPC is absolutely delighted that some of its Housing Fund is being used to fund this build of 18 Affordable Homes that will increase the availability of accommodation for some families who are in greatest need of support in Bridgwater. For a family with three teenagers going from a flat with two small bedrooms to a proper house will literally transform their lives”
Phillip Barnes, Associate Director at E G Carter & Co Ltd said: “We are pleased to have partnered with Magna Housing and other key partners to deliver these homes. We have worked on a number of projects locally and we are proud of the quality of homes we have delivered and looking forward to seeing these homes make a difference to the residents of Bridgwater.”
