MESSAGE FROM CEO of INSPIRED VILLAGES, DEVELOPER OF L&G SITE
Many residents have been enquiring when the work at the L&G Site is due to commence, as we had previously been advised that Inspired Villages planned to make a start on the existing Grade 2* listed building in September 2020, which was then extended to March 2021.
I met with Jamie Bunce, the CEO of Inspired Villages and he has provided the following statement:-
“As many Kingswood Residents are aware, we had intended to begin work on site at Legal and General House last year after securing full planning. However, the COVID pandemic has resulted in further detailed discussions and agreements with the property owner, LGAS on commencing works together with greater understanding from the specialist contractors that are preparing the Grade 2* building for its new role. We are expecting works to begin this year and will confirm an exact date in the next few months.
Naturally, we’re disappointed about this delay, but I wanted to reassure Residents’ Association members and all Kingswood residents that our plans for the village remain completely unchanged and the Inspired team can’t wait to begin work!”
The KRA will continue to keep residents informed of any further update on the proposed commencement date for this development.
Kingswood Residents Association (Chair)
