Don’t go far from the development on foot by choice than wish to, but overall shops are available and overall services are more than acceptable.

Please review your development:

Overall there has been issues with my house which have taken time to complete. Overall though the site is nice with a nice community group and my particular street is lovely.

Solid builds but finishing needs improvement with the new builds.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Better awareness and importance of snagging before moving in but soon got to grips.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Some issues have took time which wasn’t ideal but following initial big issues house is fine.

Parking availability is great, the bin collections are always on time and no issues. Not much traffic noise and very rarely any anti- social behaviour.

Please review your development:

I love the spacious gardens, the kitchen designs. The outdoor structure of the houses especially the detached houses.The design and facilities are great. The bedrooms could be slightly bigger but depends on which house you are buying. Building management can be effective, a few change in management over the years.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The estate is growing! Not a bad thing just was extremely quiet when I first moved in. Good for deliveries.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Steve is exceptional he has helped me with every issue I’ve had.

Unhappy at empty promises.

We expect some snagging issues but we also expect the correct trades people to be sent to correct any issues we had but we soon realised once in the property the service you promised was not the service we received. We had jobs that had to be redone more than once due to the wrong inexperienced people sent. The time scale was weeks not days and then once at our property not aware of the work needed. So far we have been told to slam the front door to be able to close it and lock it, had a locksmith out early hours because the guy sent to adjust the patio door left them so we were unable to actually lock them and had shower Ensuit replaced due to leak only to have to have it replaced again just over a month after the refit and we are still don’t know when it will be sorted. Plus there are now two ceilings and a wall that needs repairs due to the leaking. Plus our garden has very poor drainage and remains waterlogged for weeks at a time. However its up to each individual to make their own minds up. We are just being honest. Our experience is shocking and very upsetting.

Please review your development:

Home owners concerns. Time jobs take to put right months not day or even weeks. Lack of knowledge to complete a repair. Everyone blaming someone else. Having to resort to saying will put pictures on social media just to get a job completed.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Insist on the correct trades people to be sent to do a job. Watch what is being done. Take picture throughout the work for your own back up.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

We have had to be firm and we also had to resort to saying we would put picture on social media at one point. We have reported issues to the office and to CEO at Lovells and we are still waiting on more than one issue.
