We’re providing a shop unit for a partnership dedicated to supporting the community in Bradford-on-Avon, so it can help local artisans sell their goods.
The Bradford-on-Avon Community Area Network gives groups and individuals an active role in delivering projects such as in transport, housing, health, the environment, education, and culture and leisure.
Since May our Western region has allowed the organisation without charge to use a unit in Lamb Yard – part of our award-winning Kingston Mills development which has brought to life a set of disused industrial buildings by the River Avon.
The unit hosts a shop called Made in Bradford-on-Avon which supports local artisans by selling a range of art works and craft items.
Kingston Mills is a town centre collection of homes, shops, cafes and public open space. It won the Mixed Use category in the prestigious Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2012.
Linden Homes Western managing director Clive Wiltshire said: “Kingston Mills is a very special development in the heart of the community, so it’s a perfect spot for the Bradford-on-Avon Community Area Network to have its base.
“We want to build quality homes where residents enjoy living, and having a thriving community is a very important part of that.”
Linden Homes has contributed over £12.8 million towards outdoor open areas throughout the UK since 2010.
The blocks we use to build your home are the most energy efficient available and 80% of material within the blocks is recycled material - this saves heat loss from our homes and thus reduces CO2 emissions.
