Improving the area where you live
It is an exciting time for people living in Pendleton. New and distinctive neighbourhoods are being created. Lindinis, Denbigh, Nursery, South Clarendon and The Broadwalk are being remodelled and there will be three new neighbourhoods - Amersham, Market and Windsor.
Each neighbourhood will have a park and the new and improved Clarendon Park will be at the heart of the community. Every resident will be a five minute walk away from a green open space.
The highlights for Amersham include:

It will have a south-facing park-side ground floor cafe/restaurant, lounge, therapy rooms and communal spaces, apartments above and community garden and parking to the rear.
- High Rise Improvements
Work is underway on our high rise properties.
They are being covered in energy efficient external cladding and each flat will be fitted with double glazed windows, a new kitchen, bathroom and heating system.
The new heating system, an exhaust air heat pump, replaces the need for gas because they run fully on electricity to provide all the heating, hot water and ventilation the flats require.
A show flat is open the last Thursday evening in each month where any residents can go and view the kitchen and bathrooms being fitted, and see how the new heating system works.
Give us a call on 0300 555 5567 to come and have a look at the new kitchen, bathroom and heating system.
