COLNE HOUSING FORMAL OPENING OF NEW ST OSYTH PROPERTIES

>

A front view of the eight new low cost two bedroom flats built at the junction of Rochford Road and Meadow View, to be known as ‘Chich Place’.

The Colne Housing Society is a charitable housing association. They have previous had two earlier development schemes in St Osyth. These may be seen by clicking Development 2003 and Development 2008
The Society was established in 1973, and now after thirty nine years they own or manage in co-operation with other organisations such as our St Osyth Almshouse Charity, nearly 3,000 affordable homes throughout North Essex and South Suffolk. This development of eight properties, once again with our Almshouse Charity as a partner, provides another two dwelling for which our local charity have full nomination rights, making a total of eight properties where we can house village residents on our own terms and conditions.
For St Osyth this has proved to be a most valuable arrangement. Our Almshouse Charity owned the land, gifted by the County Council, but no money with which to build. Colne Housing was able to obtain funds to build and our land was available, so a beneficial deal was struck

Readers may not know that Parish and District Councillor John White is the Chairman of our St Osyth Almshouse Charity Trust and is also a ‘Board Member’ of Colne Housing. I think this crossover of responsibility is of considerable benefit to the residents of St Osyth!

The invited guests assembled on the back garden lawn of ‘Chich Place’ to hear Tim Young speak about this new development in St Osyth in partnership with St Osyth Almshouse Charity

Lord Petre, Lord Lieutenant of Essex; Mr. Tim Young, the Chairman of Colne Housing Society, speaking to the assembled guests and Mr. Mark Powell Davies, Chief Executive of the Society

After the unveiling and a round of applause by the guests for the action

The Lord Lieutenant expressed his pleasure being invited to formally open Chich Close.

This development is the final stage of the 33 properties built on the Priory Meadows Special Needs School site in St Osyth by Colne Housing, at a cost of £3.6 million including a grant of £1.2 million from the ‘Homes and Community Agency’. We now have Abbey Court; Clinton Close; Meadow View and now Chich Place. We are all very pleased with the quality of the properties built!.
