Members of Trowbridge Youth Parliament recently visited the former Margaret Stancomb school site in Trowbridge, ahead of redevelopment work by E G Carter & Co Ltd and Selwood Housing Group.
Selwood Housing, a local housing association based in Wiltshire, along with construction company E G Carter & Co Ltd, gave members of the Trowbridge Youth Parliament a tour around the site, giving the children an opportunity to see the former school building, learn about the plans to transform the site into affordable homes and to ask questions.
Paul Walsh, Group Development Director from Selwood Housing Group said, "We were pleased to welcome the Trowbridge Youth Parliament, to take a tour around the former school that many of their parents and even grandparents went to. We are due to start work on this site in July, with the first homes expected to be completed in spring 2020. Many of the children expressed an interest in coming back and we would love to invite them once the homes have been built."
