St Austell-based housing provider Ocean Housing has celebrated further success on its mission to deliver quality new homes across Cornwall. Residents of the Water Lane development of affordable homes in Hayle were joined by Ocean’s Board members, Dennis Spilsbury and Chris Durkin as well as Deputy Mayor Clive Polkinghorne, to share in the moment as Councillor Andrew Mitchell, Cornwall Council’s Cabinet Member for Homes, officially opened the scheme.
The 20 new properties have provided a real boost to local residents keen to obtain a place they can really call home. Mr Power, who has lived in the parish for many years confirmed:
‘“My new home has really changed my life, I feel secure in a great neighbourhood”.
Councillor Mitchell alongside Mark Gardner, Ocean Group’s Chief Executive, were invited for a tour inside the properties and see how the new residents have settled in. Mark commented:
“It is great to see residents moving in to our properties in time for Christmas and making solid communities. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved at Water Lane.”
Developments continue apace at the Ocean Housing Group, which incorporates quality Cornish construction firm Gilbert & Goode. Just after Christmas, Ocean will be completing a further 26 properties for rent and shared ownership. What a great start to the New Year!
