Cross Trees Park Community Update


Community Update                                                Autumn 2019

At Legal & General Homes, we understand that communication is key to our local residents, so we put the utmost importance on providing regular updates to anyone who may be affected by the construction of our developments.

Whilst our team works hard to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum, we would also like to thank residents for their patience and understanding.

A420 access
Our construction access from the A420 is now built and we continue to work closely with the local authority highways to complete final safety audits and agree on a date for opening the access road. Once this is open we expect the majority of our deliveries to come through this entrance.

Offsite works
Our drainage connection on Farringdon Road has now reached the entrance to Pennyhooks Lane.   Thames Water Utilities will be commencing final connection works to Pennyhooks Lane in mid-September and we expect these works to last for approximately 12 weeks.

Visitors Centre
Our Visitors Centre is now open off Highworth Road and we are pleased to report high levels of interest in our new homes.

Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 10:00 – 17:30.

We launch our brand new show home on Saturday 28th September, you can register your details and book a private appointment here.

Construction on Phase 1
With approximately 70 tradespeople on site each day, with around 50 plots at various stages of construction from foundations to internal fit-out.  We are looking forward to welcoming the first residents to Cross Trees Park before the end of 2019.

Onsite infrastructure
The roads are progressing well with around 70% of the first phase now finished and most of the onsite drainage is now complete.

Social Value
Legal & General Homes and the team have been working hard to make a difference to the community around Cross Trees Park as part of our commitment to Social Value.
We’ve now launched our Grant scheme in the Visitors Centre. The charities for this quarter are: Pennyhooks Farm, Shrivenham Memorial Hall and Viscountess Barrington’s Homes.

Please visit us to vote for your favourite charity.

Security and site safety
Our site is patrolled by security out of work hours. We would, however, like to take this opportunity to remind residents that whilst all reasonable precautions are taken, building sites can seem exciting to children but they can be dangerous places.

As ever, we would, therefore, ask parents to ensure their children are made aware of the dangers and are instructed not to enter the construction site at any time unless doing so under the full supervision of our site staff and wearing full personal protective equipment.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank residents for their patience and understanding with us whilst we undertake the development.  Our team will be working hard to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum always.
