Open Project • Affordable
This is a development of three blocks of flats on Sherborne Street in Gloucester for Gloucester City Homes. Nine one-bed flats and 22 two-bed flats are to be constructed for affordable rent. The three blocks will be arranged around a central courtyard and will share external circulation space. These features will develop a community focus for residents as well as enhance privacy.
These flats will be a welcome replacement for Sherborne House, which will be demolished before the construction of the new blocks. Sherborne House was built as part of Gloucester’s first sheltered housing scheme and the materials used in the new development will be a vast improvement on those that were used when the original scheme was developed in 1971, providing energy efficient and secure homes for 31 families.
This development will include the 110th unit built by Aqua Construction for Gloucester City Homes across 11 sites over the last three years.
