Buckley Close development

New homes for neighbourhoods development update

Work has begun to build 12 new much-needed council rented homes on the former site of 51 empty council garages in Buckley Close, Hangleton. The scheme was approved at the Housing & New Homes committee in November 2018 and planning permission was granted in April 2019.

We appreciate the work is causing some inconvenience. Please be assured the council and our contractors, Morgan Sindall, are doing all we can to keep disruption to a minimum.

We will be updating this page regularly with information for residents about what's going on. We're expecting work on the site to be completed next spring.

We will be marking temporary road linings on 15 August 2019. These are part of a temporary traffic regulation order to make sure the area remains accessible and safe for residents and site deliveries. Morgan Sindall will put cones out to show where cars shouldn’t park the night before.

We have been placing cones out to keep areas clear for cars to turn at the top of the road until the yellow lines are marked. Other contractors such as UK Power Networks have put out cones to mark areas where they need to work. Please do not park in these areas as it will block access for other residents and cause delays to the work.

We’re aware of some access issues for rubbish and recycling collections. Colleagues at Cityclean have sent a smaller refuse truck to clear outstanding collections.

Following concerns raised by residents, Morgan Sindall’s contractors will not park in Buckley Close.

We’d like to thank Chichester Close residents for allowing us to put up fencing, making the site safe and allowing work to progress.

The devlopment is part of our New Homes for Neighbourhoods programme, building much-needed new rented council homes on council-owned land in thje city.
