Demolition commenced today on one of our newest projects, Lakewood Phase 4, for Town and Country Housing Group, located on Greggs Wood Road.
We were joined on site by a very special former resident and his family to mark the occasion. Harvey, aged 7, along with his mum Lauren Kemp and brother Riley, lived in number 80 Greggs Wood Road, one of the homes set to be demolished.
Ms. Kemp lived in the property for 6 years and son Harvey has a strong connection his former home, having been born in the front room.
Lauren contacted us and asked if Harvey could do the honour of starting the demolition process and we were happy to oblige.
Harvey and Riley, both construction and machinery mad, donned hard hats and high viz jackets and used an airhorn to commence the demolition.
“We’re so grateful to Jenner and Town and Country Housing for giving us this opportunity,” says Ms. Kemp, “Harvey as not stopped talking about his old home and bedroom since we were decanted and really wanted the chance to be a part of the demolition”
Lakewood Phase 4 will provide 39 new homes for the local community and will provide access for the local community into the woodland behind. The scheme set to be complete prior to Christmas 2018.
