The design of the property is very good, access to the building is very secure and people living here all seem to be very friendly.

The design of the property is very good, access to the building is very secure and people living here all seem to be very friendly. When you first move into this property the developers do a handover and go through things with you. There have been a couple of minor issues since I’ve moved in and the management company does get them fixed quickly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Overall the property is lovely, the location is excellent, being very close to the town Centre and mainline station. Although it’s on the main road, you do not hear any traffic noises at any time of the day, it’s always very peaceful even when you’re outside on your patio.

I cannot think of any dislikes regarding the area the property is located.

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

I wish I had read and understood what communal heating is before I’d purchased this property, everything else is perfect it’s just the communal heating.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The one thing I would change is the communal heating, this has proved to be quite expensive, you’re tied into using a company who supply heating to the whole building, you cannot change. Usually if you’re not happy with an energy supplier you can change to another supplier and even get a cheaper deal. Living here doesn’t give you this option, you’re stuck with the same supplier. As a customer I should have the choice to switch to any supplier and find better deals, I have found this communal heating costing more. I would advise anyone buying a property at this development to read and understand how communal heating works before purchasing.

Great quality development

The bins are just outside, and the security of the building is great. Several doors with fob entries before your own. The developers are also super attentive and quick to fix things. The design is nice, I have a 3 bed flat, over 2 floors called a duplex, and it’s beautiful.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good quality development. Local Parking is an issue, but secure underground parking is offered. Traffic is there but triple glazing drowns out the noise.

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

There’s a kwikfit just nearby and it is quite an eyesore

What is the best feature of your home:

I love the 2 floor aspect to the flat, and the rooms are a huge size

The development it’s self is very modern

The development it’s self is very modern. With good and safe intercom systems. The lobby / garden areas are kept clean and tidy. We have very spacious balcony and we are lucky enough to face onto the green area. Unless our kitchen window is open noise of the main road is very minimal.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

You are within walking distance of all the local shops , pubs and restaurants. Parking is slightly more difficult if you have visitors as there isn’t many spaces for visitors to park.

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

The lifts are still incomplete. You are able to use them but they don’t look very nice. I hope they will be finished soon.

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

We have had a few issues within the property and unfortunately happened over the bank holiday period however the building manager responded to emails within 24 hours and the maintenance men are coming to sort the issues

Orchid court

Great development, good quality build. The appliances aren’t of great quality but do the job.
Good isolation, very confortable place to live in. Very efficient heating system via communal boiler and private heat exchanger.
Good quality overall, not much to complain about.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Close to the train station and to the high street, great location

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

There isn’t any food waste bins. It’s not a big deal but disappointing.

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

Sometimes took up to a week to get a response, but gets things sorted
