Non-traditional houses in Rother Vale Ward to get new
lease of life
Celebrating an outstanding investment in housing in Thurcroft and Treeton, Rother Vale Ward Councillors declared, "We are really delighted to get this news - it's everything that we've been working with residents to achieve."
"When we first met the residents of the forty-two houses, which were built with non-traditional materials in the two villages, we were all very concerned that their homes might be seen as too expensive to bring up to modern standards and householders might have to move," explained Cllr John Swift. "Many of the residents had lived in the same house for years or had bought their properties - so it was very worrying for everyone."
"As Councillors, we've been active in bringing forward policies to support housing improvement and build new Council houses," said Councillor Jeb Nightingale, "so we're particularly pleased that the Council have now decided to invest in keeping these homes available."
"Bringing the houses up to date with new external walls, modern standards of insulation and secure windows, new kitchens and bathrooms will involve a lot of work, but we know from a similar scheme on houses in Ulley, that disruption will be kept to a minimum and residents will receive support to deal with the changes as they're made."
The scheme to invest in thirty-six non-traditional homes in Elgitha Drive, Rotherwood Crescent, St Withold Avenue and Ulrika Drive, Thurcroft and six in Burntwood Crescent, Treeton is planned to be carried out before the end of March 2011 and is part of a total investment of approximately £1.7 million to bring these non-traditional buildings to twenty-first century standards. It follows a highly successful scheme in Ulley which was completed in 2009.
