Construction News Image
Vale Southern Construction has been selected by Thorngate Churcher Trust, a charitable registered social landlord, to build 30 new homes for the over 50's in Gosport, Hampshire.

The £6.7 million contract will provide warden-assisted flats as part of the charity’s long-term commitment to providing affordable housing in Gosport.

Vale Southern will transform a derelict corner plot into a development spanning two and three storeys offering contemporary homes, communal facilities, car parking and landscaped grounds. Modern methods of construction will be used by the contractor, including a lightweight steel frame, which will be assembled off site to achieve higher programme productivity.

Oliver West, Managing Director of Vale Southern, said: "We're looking forward to working with Thorngate Churcher Trust for the first time and bringing much needed housing to the area.

"Although the site itself is vacant, we’re mindful of the surrounding residents and will be liaising closely with them to try and minimise any potential disruption. Our priority is to deliver this vital development within 56 weeks enabling the first residents to move in by late spring 2025."

The project has been kickstarted following a grant from Homes England and will meet a growing demand for housing in the borough with more than 100 people on Thorngate's waiting list for an assisted living home.
