Road markings – message from GHVDC

” Road markings will be refreshed and cycle path ones added from 0830 on Monday 21st December weather permitting, if adverse then on  22nd if weather suitable.

These works will be Development wide, though concentrated on Graven Hill Road and the roads leading off it.

It will necessary for junctions to be closed  sequentially to allow works to proceed safely. Due to both weather and transient nature of work it is not possible to provide any further details.

All properties will remain accessible to vehicular traffic, if by a different route,  with the exception of the road that leads to GHVDC site offices and Marketing Suite at Foundation Square. This may be closed for a short period as there is no alternative route.

Please respect any closure should one be encountered and thank you in advance for your cooperation during these essential maintenance works. “

GHVDC Statement regarding commercial units

GHVDC Statement 6 Nov 2020:-

“We have no secured tenants for any of the commercial spaces at present but we continue to market the spaces.  We have a number of interested parties in a coffee facility within Block E,  continue to have strong interest in the local store which will be delivered in conjunction with Block A apartments and managing enquiries relating to the nursery.

Like many developments, COVID-19 has had an impact including reduced number of commercial enquiries/viabilities of certain types of businesses to start up and our occupation rates are less than planned.  This has resulted in a drop off in enquiries for the remaining retail and pub sites, so like any business we will continue to review our options regarding use and timescales for the development.

GHVDC will continue to provide updates as and when we have information to share via the residents newsletter and liaison meeting with the Graven Hill Residents’ Group.”
