The wait is over for Hinkley C

Following the many years of uncertainty regarding the development of Hinkley Point, it now seems that the waiting may finally be over. Contractors are being re-employed to continue groundworks at the site and as estate agents we are at the forefront of helping manage the associated housing needs.

As a company affiliated to UK Contractors Limited, we are already receiving enquiries for accommodation for January 2016 and expect required levels of accommodation to increase throughout the early part of the New Year.

UK Contractors Limited are retained by a number of construction companies such as Kier Group Plc to find accommodation for contractors in our area and times could vary between twelve months and eight years. In total it is expected that nearly 10,000 contractors will be required over a ten year period of the construction of Hinkley C.

Close to the site are pods for 1500 key workers which leave at least 8,500 workers to be housed. This will obviously have a huge impact on sales and rental values in the Bridgwater area but will also stretch further afield with UK Contractors informing us that they will be looking from Bristol to Exeter for accommodation.
