Decision made on building name
Trees were the inspiration for the name we’ve chosen for our new apartment block at Phase 5 of North Prospect.
The building, will which have 33 flats for over 55 year olds, is at the junction of Cookworthy and Foliot Roads.
We can now reveal it will be called Briarwood Heights, a name put forward by PCH resident Jan Kings.
We asked residents and followers on Facebook to suggest names for the building, which is due for completion later this autumn.
We had dozens of suggestions from people – thank you for all your ideas.
Jan said: “I put forward quite a few names. One of them was Briarwood. There are quite a few roads in the area with tree names – for example Laurel Road. I thought this would keep the tree connection going.”
Jan also put forward Yew Tree House and Hawthorn Heights and there is also an Ash Grove nearby.
But in the end our executive management team decided to go for Briarwood Heights.
Briarwood is also the name of the phase in which the building sits. It is the penultimate phase of the regeneration and is being built by Tilia Homes.
When complete next Spring, it will have 143 homes, 43 for affordable rent, 31 for shared ownership through SO Living and 66 for private sale through Tilia.
