Fareham Borough Council's new £5m state of the art sheltered housing scheme has moved a step closer this week as demolition starts on the old Collingwood House building in Stow Crescent.
The Council's contractors, Leadbitter, have started to demolish the existing building, in preparation for the new Collingwood House. This will include 40 apartments with a mix of one and two-bed flats, as well as a communal lounge, activity room, buggy store and gardens and open space.
Executive Member for Health and Housing, Councillor Brian Bayford said: "This is the largest capital project for Fareham Borough Council for more than 20 years. It is an exciting time for both the Council and residents of Collingwood House to see that work on their new home is getting underway."
The re-development is set to cost £5m, which is being helped with an investment of £625,000 from the Homes and Communities Agency. Work is due to be completed by January 2015.
If anyone has any queries or concerns while the works are being carried out please contact Leadbitter's Community Engagement Manager Vicky Barker on 07827 290801 or email@example.com, or Project Manager Daniel Culkin on 07798713401 or firstname.lastname@example.org
