Official Handover Of Homes At ’Bluebells’, Barbrook Green, Reydon.
The official handover of the new shared ownership and rental homes in Reydon took place on 5 June, when the site keys were handed from Paul Pitcher, Managing Director of the developer, Wellington, to Ian Fieldhouse, Regional Director for Orbit Homes East.
The event was attended by many of those involved in the project, and thanks were given to all those who have been involved, including the landowners who made the land for the development available, the Developer, the Builders, Orbit Homes East and the Parish Councillors who worked on the project. Acknowledgement was made of the contribution made by the late Cllr Sue Allen, who was also involved during the early stages.
Paul Pitcher paid tribute to the neighbours close to the development for their patience and support during the building work and said he was delighted to have received many positive comments from Reydon residents. The first residents have now started to move in and it expected that all of the rental homes will be occupied in the next few weeks. These have been allocated using a Local Lettings policy. The road itself has been named 'Barbrook Green' as a tribute to the late Ken Barbrook. The site is spacious with good sized gardens, plenty of parking and communal green space.
The development has 23 new homes, 17 for affordable rental and 6 for shared ownership, and they have been built as a result of a partnership between Orbit Homes East, East Suffolk Council, Reydon Parish Council and Wellington. The rental homes have now been allocated, but there is still availability on some of the shared ownership homes, which have 2 or 3 bedrooms, large gardens and fully fitted kitchens. Anyone interested in finding out more should contact Orbit Homes East on 0845 6004072.
