St. Andrew’s Court was originally built in the 1970’s, with access-deck blocks of flats facing onto an open tarmac car park. It suffered from poor security, there were no resident’s amenity facilities, or dedicated parking.
Following extensive consultation, a housing terrace and apartment building were built, enclosing a secure, landscaped courtyard.
The new terrace is arranged as 3 repeating groups of 3 dwellings. Each contains a 1-bedroom ground floor flat, a 2-bedroom house and a 3-bedroom maisonette. All dwellings face south and are slightly set back with front yards, balconies and terraces, bin stores and railings.
