Work back under way at Liskeard new homes scheme
Treveth Development is pleased to announce that work is back under way at its Bann an Hyns development of 46 new homes, targeted at local people, being built at Maudlin Farm, Liskeard.
Locally based construction company Classic Builders has been appointed to complete the project after the scheme was one of many across the South West affected by the previous contractor, Mi-space and its parent Midas Group, entering into administration.
Classic Builders is currently on site and carrying out preparation works in advance of building works recommencing in early July 2022.
It is envisaged that the first phase will be completed in Spring 2023 with the whole scheme due for completion in Summer 2023.
Tim Mullholland, Managing Director of Treveth, said: “We are very pleased to see work resuming on this important project for the Liskeard community.
“It’s hard to understate the impact on the regional construction sector caused by the sudden demise of Midas Group and across the region there are many projects that remain stalled. Treveth acted quickly to secure the Bann an Hyns site and our early work on contingency planning has enabled us to restart activity on site at the earliest opportunity.
“We are delighted to be working with Classic Builders, a locally-based construction company, and to see the build phase of the Mauldin Farm scheme continuing to support local employment and supply chains.”
The Bann an Hyns project on land south of Lake Lane on the eastern side of the town is being developed by Treveth, the partnership company set up by Cornwall Council to deliver new homes and commercial development to benefit people who live and work in Cornwall. It will feature 35 homes for private rent and 11 affordable homes, including seven affordable rent and four shared ownership properties.
Treveth’s mission is to improve the quality of new homes in Cornwall, especially in the private rented sector, and to foster new communities by offering three-year tenancies as standard. It prioritises local people first when renting its properties, with its developments aimed at households who have local links either through residency, employment or close family.
Treveth is also taking a lead on sustainable development. It has moved away from fossil fuel heating by using greener alternatives to make its new developments low carbon and its homes cheaper to run. Solar energy panels and renewable heating systems are being included on all suitable properties at Maudlin Farm, in line with Treveth and Cornwall Council’s commitment to tackle climate change.
