Elim’s first new Gypsy and Traveller Development in Bath is nearly completed, with the site, known as Carrswood View, due to be finished by the end of the financial year.
This morning (March 17th), Elim and Bath and North East Somerset Council , Elim’s partner in delivering the site, organised an informal viewing for key partners including Julian House, Avon & Somerset Police and The Big Issue.
Chief Executive of Elim Housing, Alistair Allender, said: “Elim is extremely pleased to report that Carrswood View Site will soon be complete and ready to provide eight new permanent pitches for families from the Gypsy and Traveller Community in addition to five transit pitches. We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents onto the site in April 2015, and will continue to work closely with Bath & North East Somerset Council and other statutory and local agencies to ensure that Carrswood View is a well-managed, pleasant and safe place to live. We are also sensitive to the needs of the nearby settled community and local businesses, and welcome any queries they may have.”
Delivering the site will provide a range of benefits for residents and the wider community.
Cllr Tim Ball, Bath and North East Somerset Council Cabinet Member for Homes & Planning, said: “I am delighted that after many years of trying, this Council has finally been able, and with the help of Government funding, to provide a permanent Gypsy and Traveller site. This will have a huge impact on the health and welfare of the residents and importantly have many other wider benefits for the Council and the community.”Read Welcome to Carrswood View: Elim’s first new Gypsy and Traveller site in Bath…
