Scheme lodged for 170 new homes on Christchurch site

2019-01-29T15:21:55+00:00January 29th, 2019|Categories: News|

Plans for up to 170 new homes to provide much needed housing in Christchurch have been lodged with the council.

We have applied to Christchurch Borough Council for outline planning permission for the development.

The homes are proposed for our four acre site in Reid Street after we relocate to a new, state-of-the-art facility.

They are a mixture of two and three bedrooms houses and one and two bedroom flats with access roads and parking.

We have taken feedback into account after we consulted with local people, business, councillors and community groups about our proposals last October.

Simon Boyd, who is managing director of REIDsteel, said: “REIDsteel is committed to leaving a legacy of much-needed housing when we leave our current home of more than 50 years.

“We have listened to comments made about our initial proposals and consulted with our professional advisors before drawing up our […]

John Reid & Son Ltd (REIDsteel) has provided expertise for the construction of a £7.3m Jaguar Land Rover showroom in the Midlands.

We’ve worked on the new complex for the Jardine Motors Group in Wolverhampton through main contractor Speller Metcalfe.

We met all of the propriety design requirements for the erection of structural steelwork, cladding and decking for the state-of-the-art showroom.

Jordan Laker, REIDsteel Project Engineer, said: “The Jaguar Land Rover dual branded facilities showroom with the Jardine Motors Group was an exciting development to be involved in and the finished showroom looks superb.

“Jardine is a leading national retail network and this will be one of the largest Jaguar Land Rover dual branded facilities in the country.

“We worked closely with Speller Metcalfe to meet the propriety requirements of Jaguar Land Rover to create a flagship building which reflects the quality and excellence for which the company is known.

“The automotive retail sector is a growth area for REIDsteel and we anticipate focusing on similar schemes in the near future.”

We’re aiming to inspire engineers of the future at a special event on Thursday November 22.

We’ll be among the businesses exhibiting at the Careers in Engineering event at Curtiss-Wright on the Aviation Park West at Bournemouth International Airport.

It is being held for students in Years 9 to 13, and their parents, to give an insight into the future opportunities on offer.

There will be the chance to meet and speak with existing apprentices, as well as local employers such as ourselves.
