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.
