Local work producing results
Thakeham is delighted with progress at Grants Hill Court, Uckfield where local contractors are providing the construction skills. “It is good to see local firms employing apprentices, and to learn first-hand how these schemes are helping provide training and future employment,” said Councillor Wells.
A £10m retirement living scheme
The largest scheme undertaken by the Council in recent years, Wealden District Council’s £10m Retirement Living scheme has been designed to meet the needs of people in their later years. Appreciating the importance of outside space, the scheme includes two internal gardens together for communal use in addition to outside space for all 67 apartments, in the form of large winter gardens or private balconies.
Consideration of local vernacular
The contemporary brick finish and tiled pitched roof resonances with properties found in the nearby conservation area, fitting in with the local Sussex vernacular style.
