The site which transferred to the ownership of the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) in 2013 as part of a portfolio of surplus public sector land, was subsequently acquired by E.P. Keogh Contractors Ltd following a marketing campaign implemented on behalf of the HCA by Thomas Lister.
Planning permission was secured in October 2015 for redevelopment for 14 new dwellings on the land which had been vacant and derelict for well over a decade.
Rachel Lister at Thomas Lister said
“We are delighted that the disposal of this site will deliver high quality and much needed new homes for Swindon. The derelict nature of the site means that this is not particularly straight forward to deliver given the challenges which exist”.
“E.P. Keogh Contractors Ltd has demonstrated that through their enthusiastic and pragmatic approach that they possess both the technical and local experience to deliver a high quality scheme. The new dwellings are anticipated to be completed by Autumn 2016”.
