The idea is that they want it all looking the same...which isnt so bad i think! Fees are approx 400-500 per year depending on what you are buying, there is a breakdown available if you contact your solicitor and ask!

I think the floors of the bathrooms, kitchen and hallway are tiled. And wet walls of the bathroom are tiled if you want the rest done it's extra.

You new hood is now on Waze, and it will be live in the next update, typically a few days. Here's a link to the livemap and a screenshot from the editor:




Anyone knows what is being developed across the road (to the right)?

New road connecting Shackleton to Newcastle Road. This is from the planning docs:


Permission is also sought for the upgrade of c.257m of Dodsboro Road/Tandy's Lane from the existing junction of Dodsboro Road and Dodsboro Cottages, tying back into Dodsboro Road/Tandy's Lane adjacent to the former Airlie Studfarm. A new signal controlled crossroads providing access to the proposed residential development will be provided at a point c.143m south of the existing junction of Dodsboro Road and Dodsboro Cottages. The upgraded carriageway of the Dodsboro Road/Tandy's Lane provision for vehicular traffic, bus lanes and right turning lanes as required and will be flanked on both sides by cycle paths. To the east of the proposed crossroads, permission is sought for a new 6.5m wide road of c.360m in length connecting to the existing road network.

I just had a look at the sdcc website there thanks for that! I didn't no they were building apartments at the entrance too, they kept that quiet. Have you heard back anything since signing the contracts or have they said how long it would be until they contacted you again?
Yes, there is a small block there, referred to as Block B. Its there in the brochure but it will not be built until later in the development phase. From planning:

8 duplex/apartment units (referred to as Block B) consisting of 4 three bedroom duplexes, 3 two bedroom duplexes and 1 one bedroom apartment ranging in size from 54sqm to 111sqm in a 3 - 4 storey residential block.

Yea it's just not very clear in the brochure, but I guess duplexes aren't to bad as there isn't many of them either. Thanks for that.

Hi,

I put down a deposit on a 3 bed on Shackleton Way back in May.We signed the contracts last week with the solicitor and Hooke & McDonald are telling us the house will be ready around November but I am thinking it could be late December or January before we move in.

Does anybody know if the hall floor and kitchen floor come tiled? I know the bathrooms are tiled but just trying to plan ahead.

Hi,
We put a deposit on Shackleton way in may too just waiting to sign the contracts. We were originally told November and then told January So not sure I would say it will be after Christmas.

The hall, kitchen and bathrooms are all tiled.

No were more towards the end of the road so that could be why they are saying later to us. If your on the first row then I would say it easily could be done before Christmas. The last time we drove up it looks like there is about 4 houses nearly built.

Did you sign before hearing back from there solicitors? Our solicitor requested a few things on the 8th of June and we are still waiting to hear back from them so we haven't signed our contracts yet.

No problem. You are right though that its not very clear, block B is not marked on the brochure unlike block A which has a name on the block Shackleton Hall.

Yeah we are the first row so it could be before Christmas. There Solicitors said last Friday was the final date we could sign the contracts so we signed on Thursday. I drive past the site every morning and it look's like the houses are flying up.

We were looking for a layout plan of the sockets but the builders have said they can't put any extra ones in but will send on a layout in the next few days.

Oh really, we were originally told we had to sign after 3 weeks but when our solicitor got the contracts he sent them a list of questions back at the start of June and we still haven't heard back. Hooke&MacD have called us asking why we haven't signed but we said we're waiting on them otherwise we're ready to sign. I wonder will they call us now and say we need to sign regardless.

Yea they seem to be going up fairly quick, I'm hoping they don't take longer than 6 months. Did you contact the builders directly for the socket plan? Do we get to make any changes internally or get options for anything do you know since you've signed?
