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 is now from the A420, so we expect the majority of our deliveries to come through this entrance. Wheel washing facilities have been put in place and our gate is manned during working hours.

Offsite works
Our drainage connection on Farringdon Road is now at the final stages in Pennyhooks Lane. Thames Water Utilities are completing these works and we have been advised that they are expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

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.

We recently launched four brand new show homes, which are available to view daily.

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 80% 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.
The Cross Trees Park Q3 winner was Pennyhooks Farm, with runners up Viscountess Barrington’s home for disabled ex-servicemen and women and The Memorial Hall and recreation ground.

Q4 charities; Be Free Young Carers, Prospect Hospice and Friends of Shrivenham Primary School (PTA).

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 always kept to a minimum.
