Princes Gate, High Wycombe Grand Union

GUHG to start flagship development

Grand Union Housing Group (GUHG) has announced it is starting work on a multi-million pound flagship development which will become home to adults with learning disabilities.

The Princes Gate development in High Wycombe, which is expected to take around a year to build, will provide new homes for 14 people, with on-site support.

MacIntyre Housing Association, a subsidiary of GUHG, is working in partnership with Buckinghamshire County Council on Project Abode to replace the older, outdated and often unsuitable accommodation that these adults have previously been living in.

The total amount that this scheme is expected to cost is just under £3 million.

Phil Mitchinson, the Group’s Director of Corporate Development, said: “We are so pleased to see work get underway for the development of Princes Gate. It’s been a long time coming but we’re delighted to be able to start the work now.”

Aileen Evans, Managing Director of MacIntyre, added: “The site will provide vital homes for extraordinary members of the community who have long since needed updated accommodation. We can’t wait to get started.”

GUHG is working with contractor Bramall Construction, part of Keepmoat Ltd, on the site that is to be newly named Grove Gardens.
