Ravenswood UVW – 96 houses and flats due to be completed in 2025.
These new homes will be a mix of Council housing let at affordable rent, market rent (let and managed by Handford Lettings) and starter homes for sale.
A small amount of enabling work was completed, including creating access for construction vehicles, removing some trees and planting new ones – we will plant two trees for every tree that has to be removed as part of the development.
Ravenswood UVW is one of the last sites on the former Ipswich Airport to be developed and we know that not everyone who lives on Ravenswood welcomes the development of new houses here. We will ensure that our contractors are considerate to residents and to wildlife – we will have wildlife corridors throughout the construction phase and will incorporate bee bricks, bat boxes and swift boxes as well as making sure that our planting schemes are good for wildlife. We’ll be providing new walks, more litter and dog waste bins and generally ensuring the development is as high quality and environmentally friendly as it can be.
