40 new affordable homes in Church Village

Trivallis has launched its first development in Church Village. 

Staff and consultant partners came together to celebrate the opening of Springfield Court, a large housing development made up of 40 properties in Church Village.

In 2014, Trivallis made the decision to redevelop Springfield Court because of the high demand for affordable housing in the area.

Julie Vellucci, business development director at Trivallis explained: “This is the first social housing scheme we’ve delivered as Trivallis. We’ve created high quality homes that are energy efficient and that can be adapted to meet the needs of our customers, if their circumstances change.”

Jehu Project Services worked alongside Trivallis to build the 40 new affordable homes made up of different sized flats and houses.

“It’s been a great project for us, it’s had its challenges but we’re really happy with how it’s turned out,” said Vince Alm, the project manager from Jehu. “We’re very pleased with our partnership with Trivallis and we hope to continue working with them on other projects in the future.”

One of the houses has been adapted to accommodate a family who has a young child with special needs.

During the opening representatives from RCTCBC, Hugh James Solicitors , Tony King Architects,  Austin Partnership, Asbri Planning, Strongs, and Trivallis Board came along to take a look around the newly completed site.

Stacey Tipler, the neighbourhood manager for the area said: “The properties are brilliant; they’re bigger than I thought. I’m really happy with how Springfield Court has turned out and can’t wait to get our customers signed up and in their new homes.”

Trivallis customers will begin moving in from Wednesday 28 September and the final phase of handover will be on Wednesday 12 October.

“We have delivered a high quality project that has delivered high quality homes, we are incredibly proud of the end result,” said Julie Vellucci.
