Colburn are due to launch their new Lewiston Mill development (Brimscombe, Gloucestershire) on Saturday 27th April. There will be six 3 bedroom townhouses overlooking the mill pond, and eight 2 bedroom luxury apartments. As well as the new build accommodation available, Colburn are restoring all the existing mill buildings with a mix of commercial, and residential accommodation with the view to creating valuable office space and high-quality accommodation for the stroud valley. Given the history of the old mill and surrounding buildings, originally built in 1856, there has been positive feedback from the local residents, excited to see the area regenerated.
The Team at Colburn have done all they can to create a sustainable and green development that has a positive impact on the local community. Martin Evans, Managing Director, leading the sustainable vision commented, ‘It’s great to be regenerating a local landmark building of historic interest, with sustainability and the environment in mind. Our team has worked closely with ecological consultants which has allowed us to offer photovoltaic solar panels, the infrastructure for electric vehicle charging points, a bicycle store, as well as assisting with ecological improvements to the culvert and millpond.’
Colburn are now offering their customers the infrastructure to add Electric Vehicle Charging Points through a new partnership with Pod Point, the UK’s leading provider of charge points for electric and hybrid cars. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric cars now make up 8% of the overall market. With this in mind, and with Colburn’s view to do what they can to create eco-friendly homes, Colburn are creating the infrastructure for electric vehicle charging points across the development. Matthew Watkiss, Project Specialist from Pod Point, stated ‘It’s great to see a local housebuilder adopting electric vehicle charging points ahead of the curve.’ Colburn are looking forward to having a strong partnership in place that future proofs their homes, and has a positive impact on the environment. As well as thinking about the environment, Colburn strive to have a positive impact on the local community and economy. This is achieved through working with local authorities to understand what is important, sourcing materials locally, as well as employing local contractors.
From the cabinet kitchens and silestone worktops, right through to the engineered oak flooring, it is clear to see that quality is at the core of the Lewiston Mill development. Colburn has a great reputation for building the very best homes, using the finest materials and traditional techniques.
All of the accommodation for sale on the development will be available through the help to buy scheme. If you are looking for further information regarding the development then please contact local estate agents Perry Bishop’s stroud office on 01453 762306 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
