Allan Fisher, Director of Development and Assets, NCHA:

"A great new site with a mixture of flats and houses to suit all needs. The site had been unused for some time so these new homes have made a great improvement to the appearance of the area too. Our new tenants are very happy with their new homes and we hope they will enjoy living here for years to come."
