Gloucester City Homes is building properties within the City of Gloucester. This new housing is part of the promise GCH made to build houses after becoming a social landlord in March 2015. GCH is working with ARK Housing to provide development support which has led to a comprehensive service in delivering its new housing programme.
Building started in April 2015 across a number of sites and has been split into homes for rent and housing to part buy and part rent under the shared ownership scheme. We have so far completed 36 new homes and have ambitious plans for delivering homes in the future.
Take a look at some of the properties we have completed for rent and shared ownership:
The new homes will be built to a very high standard, will be energy efficient to reduce energy bills and of a good size. The homes have been designed by local architect Quattro Design who have ensured the homes have their own sense of identity, security and privacy.
Gloucester City Homes is committed to the regeneration of communities and aims to improve social well being through an improved environment. We are employing local companies to deliver our new homes in order to help improve the local economy. This will create opportunities for apprenticeships, volunteering and jobs for local people in our construction process. We will provide opportunities for tenants to access training and jobs through apprenticeships, volunteering and creating opportunities for developing skills and employment. This could be directly with GCH or through links with our contractors and partners. We will also work with communities to develop local community plans.
