Merlin development plans update

Merlin recently held drop-in events in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton to update residents on their redevelopment plans.

The housing society has nearly finished building the first 39 new homes in Coalpit Heath, replacing "non-traditional homes" that were in a poor state of repair and expensive to heat. In the next couple of months they're going to be starting work to build another 72 new homes in Coalpit Heath and Iron Acton to replace 44 existing properties.

They will also be redeveloping the garages in Coalville Road to provide 2 new bungalows and 2 flats. They told local councillor Claire Young they are looking to carry out the demolition in winter 2016/17, then start work in early summer 2017 with the aim to be complete before the following winter.

Throughout the Coalpit Heath developments, residents will be able to drop in to the site welfare facility on Oldlands Avenue between 10.30 and 12 on Thursdays to raise any queries or issues they have.
