New homes with a View, a Coffee and an MP

Posted on

On Friday 18th May, we invited Steve Double MP to open our latest development at Tremeadow Rise, Trewoon.

After a 12 month build programme, the mix of 18 bungalows, houses and flats were fully completed this month. 3 families have already made this idyllic spot their home, with further moving dates booked in for this month.

Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay, welcomed the latest homes at Trewoon;

‘The affordable rent and shared ownership properties on this scheme provides 6 new homes for local people within the St Mewan Parish.

I am delighted to see families receiving an opportunity to live in such a beautiful part of the County and with Trewoon being a close-knit community, I believe this development to be an asset to the village. This has allowed families who might have otherwise had to look elsewhere for suitable housing, remain part of their preferred community’.

Mark Gardner, Group Chief Executive of Ocean Group commented on the success of this scheme.

‘We are delighted to have delivered these homes within such a well-known and established community, where affordable housing is much-needed and home ownership can be so out of reach for many.

This collaborative site between our sister businesses, Ocean Housing and Gilbert and Goode, has delivered a well-balanced, mixed tenure scheme with designs that complements their surroundings.

At Ocean Group we invest in people and communities, and this message is never clearer than when we get the opportunity to meet and welcome our new homeowners at events like this.’

Mark continued:

‘We would like to offer special thanks to the St Mewan Parish Council for their support during this development project and to the neighbouring community for their patience during construction works’.

We have more Affordable Rent and Shared Ownership properties in the pipeline and Gilbert and Goode are actively seeking land opportunities across Cornwall.

If you are a landowner or agent please contact our Development Team on 01726 64800.
