Working in partnership with Barratt Homes, we are providing 42 affordable new homes, 31 of them reserved for a social rent and another 11 available under a low-cost home ownership scheme. The new affordable homes are part of the larger Charfield Gardens development. 

Denise Woolford, our Development Officer, said “We are proud to handover the keys to our customers in South Gloucestershire. We are providing both one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as two, three and four-bedroomed houses to meet a variety of housing need.” 

Andrea Pilgrim, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Bristol said: “Barratt know the need for and are a major developer of affordable houses in the UK – we’ve delivered over 27,000 in the last ten years – so we are delighted to have worked with GreenSquareAccord on these beautiful new homes at our Gloucestershire site.

“Charfield is a lovely place to live, and we can’t wait to welcome all the new residents.” 

Our new homes are situated in the charming South Gloucestershire village of Charfield which boasts two pubs, an independent café, post office, cricket ground and village hall. All of the homes come with their own parking space. 

Gavin Saunders, a GSA customer who has recently moved into a home on Poskett Way, Charfield Gardens said: “I am grateful for the opportunity to have a fresh start in a new home in Charfield. I feel like I’m settling in really well and thoroughly enjoying making my new place feel like home.” 

Poskett Way was named in honour of a long-standing member of Charfield Parish Council, John Poskett. Barratt Homes have also planted an orchard close to the development complete with apple, pear, and plum trees. 

Councillor John O’Neill, cabinet member with responsibility for housing at South Gloucestershire Council, said: “I’m delighted to see people move into these new homes in Charfield. This development meets the council’s affordable housing objectives, delivering 42 affordable homes and a mix of houses and flats for social rent tenure and shared ownership. There are also three adapted properties and six self-build plots, offering a range of options for potential residents.”

The village has its own primary school with another three schools in a 2.5-mile radius making Charfield Gardens highly suitable for families with young children.

The Charfield Gardens development is just over six miles away from Yate Rail Station, it is a short journey from the M5 and is located close to bus routes.
