Residents have begun moving in to the ten new affordable homes at Munro House, Thatcham.

E G Carter & Co Ltd collaborated with Sovereign Housing Association to transform the former Taceham House into four maisonettes and six houses.

To commemorate the new development, E G Carter & Co Ltd took the opportunity to send the site team back to Thatcham to hold a ribbon cutting ceremony with local residents, new resident Kerry Newel said: “We used to live in a small two bedroomed flat, when you have four children and a husband that’s quite a squeeze. Our new home is lovely, it’s like luxury, and our favourite part is the garden”

The new six houses and four flats are designed with a modern twist to the outside of the property; a blue colour has been used on the cladding of each dwelling to give it a contemporary look which is aesthetically pleasing.

Roger Keeling, Sovereign’s Asset and Regeneration Director, said: “It’s great to see the transformation at Munro House, with new residents now moving in and turning these properties into homes.

We’re committed to providing new affordable homes in West Berkshire, both to rent and to buy, to meet local housing need. We’re also really pleased to be able to provide two nearby homes to West Berkshire Council to help them provide temporary accommodation to those that need it.”

Mathew Vye, Regional Manager at E G Carter & Co Ltd explained that the project was a challenging development but very rewarding “From demolition to asbestos removal, to actually handing the site over, this project has been challenging, yet rewarding. It was a pleasure to work with our partners Sovereign Housing Association to help regenerate the existing derelict brown field site"
