Building for a Better Future

Claire Thomas, Regeneration Manager at Bromford, tells us about their regeneration proposals on Lullington Road and Main Street in Clifton Campville:

Bromford’s social purpose is to inspire people to be their best and we believe that providing our customers with a good quality home offers them a springboard to try and achieve their goals and aspirations.

There are a number of Bromford homes in your village that are of non-traditional construction – they are made of concrete rather than a conventional brick or timber frame structure. This type of property – an “Airey” house – is extremely costly to heat and has a poor energy efficiency rating, which is the main reason we are looking to regenerate these homes.

We have looked at the costs of renovating these homes to make them more energy efficient but the type of house and its construction make them difficult to improve.  As we have a number of homes like this on Lullington Road and Main Street we have decided to use this opportunity to demolish these homes and replace them with brand new, energy efficient homes.

After initially contacting all our customers by letter, we organised a drop in session at Clifton Campville Village Hall to share our proposal, answer any questions and concerns and display some of the designs of new homes we have built in other areas.

We are currently meeting with our customers to discuss and understand their individual circumstances so we can support them through this process.  We will be keeping our customers updated with information about our proposals because they will have an option to return to the new homes but as we develop the new scheme designs, we also want to ensure the wider community can contribute and comment on our proposals.

We understand that many readers may not live in the homes which are directly affected, but know that you may like the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas with us around the new homes that will be built – after all, you or members of your family may be interested in living in one of these new homes as this regeneration will bring more affordable housing to your village.   We will be holding another drop in event later on in the year once we have initial layout proposals for the development.

If you are interested in living in one of our new homes or know someone who would like to move back to Clifton Campville in the future, please drop an email to and we will make sure you receive regular updates and are invited to future consultation events.

If you have any other queries please contact Claire Thomas, Regeneration Manager at Bromford on 01989730493 or email her at .
