Crowthorne Community Update

Community Update                                                     Spring 2019

Old Wokingham Road
Our works to old Wokingham Road have now been completed.  From time to time if asked to by the local authority we may need to complete some maintenance works.  At this time no works are planned.

Water courses and ponds
The construction of the new water courses are complete on site and are now landscaped and seeded.
The in-flow of surface water into our development varies significantly depending on the weather and this will affect the flows as it leave the development site.  We actively monitor the water flows and quality on a daily basis.

Housebuilding – Phase 1
The construction of our new homes continues to progress well with approximately 40 properties now completed and a further 55 under construction.

We have new homes under construction at different stages of build from foundation to finishes with 2 more started every week.As the development progresses we are building further towards the middle of the site and away from Old Wokingham Road..

Housebuilding – Phase 2
Construction of our phase 2 homes is now well underway with a mix of apartments and houses.
Our contractors are building the new drainage and estate roads and our superstructure construction is approaching roof stage on the first homes.

The SANG in now fully open with a number of circular routes and walks available.  For the next few weeks we will be carrying out maintenance and seasonal works on a number of small areas.
