Happy families in Bradwell!
We’re working closely with Bradwell Community Land Trust to provide 28 affordable homes in the village.
The first of these were 12 homes that we took over management of last year. They were originally homes for workers at Newburgh Engineering. These homes were at risk of being sold to a property developer and the residents feared they’d lose their homes.
After almost eight very uncertain years, the 12 families are now secure in their homes again. Rachel Sampson, who has lived in Bradwell most of her life, and her family are delighted they can stay in their home and no longer have to worry.
They’re also enjoying refurbishments throughout their home. They’ve gone from rusted work tops with holes in and cupboard doors coming off, to a beautiful new kitchen. And thanks to new windows and doors, their home is much warmer too.
Rachel says: “We’ve lived in our home for 17 years, and since PDRHA took on the management, there’s been a massive difference straight away. We’ve had a lot of much-needed work done – new windows and doors and a new kitchen. We’re so grateful; our house is significantly warmer, and it looks so much better.”
At PDRHA we're looking forward to welcoming new families, with four new affordable 2-bedroom homes on the Bradwell Springs development ready soon, and another eight homes to follow next year. We’re also hoping to develop four one-bedroom flats in the old Newburgh Hall social club.
