New Homes, Safer Homes

Silchester Arches

Silchester Arches is one of the sites included in Phase 2 of the Council’s New Homes Programme and will provide 11 Council-built homes for social rent including one ground floor wheelchair accessible home.

This six-storey building incorporates environmentally-friendly features such as double-glazed windows to retain the heat and air-source heating systems which use no gas and a small amount of electricity. These features also mean the homes are cheaper for the residents to live in.

Winter gardens

Each of the homes will have a winter garden which will ensure that noise from the surrounding area is limited.

The construction of the development by Buxton Building Contractor began in early 2023 and is due to be completed by the end of January 2025.
