Knightstone’s 46 new homes at Ruskin Close are the result of a regeneration of former local authority housing. Knightstone has also provided 18 new apartments at Moor Farm House on Wordsworth Drive. SHAL Housing has developed a further two new houses on Burns Road. The whole scheme received funding from the Homes and Communities Agency and Taunton Deane Borough Council.
Residents have already started moving in to their new community. The properties not only give people the chance to make Taunton their home, but also help them to get on the property ladder. There’s a mix of houses and apartments for affordable rent, social rent, shared ownership and Rent to Homebuy. There are also nine apartments offering supported housing.
