Bourne housing development entered in national homes awards

Have your say

THE Corn Mill development project in Bourne has been entered into a national homes award.

The development in South Street has been entered into The Sunday Times British Homes Awards by its constructors and designer, Mill Development and Roger Hill Design, both of Bourne.

The project to build 24 apartments, six of which are housed in the Grade II listed Corn Mill Warehouse, was given planning permission in 2007.

Previously the building had been used as a grain warehouse by its former owner, seed merchant firm Wherry and Son.

It has been entered into the housing project category which is for the most impressive scheme of houses or apartments with planning consent that are not more than six months into development.

The first phase of the project, six apartments, was completed in 2009 and is now fully lived in but builders have just completed the foundations for the remaining 18 apartments.

The current area in development will include a mobility scooter charging area, cycle storage and car parking, all behind security gates.

The awards will be presented at The London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square on September 19.
