Popular Cardiff development receives residential development of the year award
Lovell Homes’ popular Te Mill development in Canton, Cardiff, has been named as the Residential Development of the Year at Insider’s Wales Property Awards. Te project was nominated by Powell Dobson Architects, who designed Te Mill, which has successfully transformed the former paper mill into a thriving and sustainable residential community which will provide 800 homes across the 53-acre site. Te Mill, which is a partnership between Lovell Homes, Tirion Homes, Principality Building Society and Cadwyn Housing Association, has provided opportunity for growth for the local construction industry through Lovell’s commitment to giving back local resources.

Location close to schools makes Weston
Meadow perfect for teachers Liz and Tom Liz and Tom Killigrew are happily settling into their brand new home at David Wilson Homes’ Weston Meadow development in Calne. And the development’s close proximity to local schools is an added bonus for the couple. “We are both teachers - I am at The Corsham School and Tom is at Yate Academy - so we wanted to be closer to both schools,” said Liz (35). “Weston Meadow was an excellent option for us, not only because of its location but also for the quality of build here. “David Wilson Homes is known for the style and space of its house designs, and our choice - the Hadley - is perfect. It is a large family home with a kitchen/dining room space which opens out onto the garden. We also have a garage and double parking area.
“The layout of the house was a huge attraction - with its large kitchen and easy access to the garden. Add to that this beautiful area, close enough to Chippenham for the train line and shops, and the great green space at the back,
and we knew we’d found our ideal home.” Weston Meadow is a development of two, three and four bedroom homes near Calne. Located on the edge of the North Wessex Downs, the new homes are surrounded by countryside. Commuters have easy access to Chippenham, Swindon and Bath. “We were both happy in our teaching jobs and wanted to get onto the property ladder, whilst moving closer to work - and Weston Meadow was the ideal solution,” added Tom (31). “The service has been fantastic from David Wilson Homes. Both the sales and site staff have gone above and beyond to make our new home perfect.” Current availability at Weston Meadow includes the three bedroom Ashurst and Greenwood homes, priced from £285,000 and £310,000 respectively, and the four bedroom Bayswater, Cornell, Holden and Chelworth designs, from £350,000, £385,000, £425,000 and £460,000.
