‘Topping Out’ ceremony marks milestone for Alliance Homes

A traditional ‘topping out’ ceremony in Worle has marked an important stage in the build of Alliance Homes’ new £10 million development of 65 self-contained apartments for people over 55.

Serving Worle and the surrounding area, Tamar Court will provide a hub of specialist dementia support and housing services, including a Wellbeing Centre and a number of community resources.

The event brought together the teams involved in the project to celebrate placing the final brick in the new facility.

Marking the occasion Alliance Homes’ Deputy Chair, John Bird said: “This is an important and exciting project for the Group which now provides support and care services to around 1,500 people to support them to achieve or maintain levels of independence in their lives. We look forward to welcoming the first residents later this year.”

John was joined by Rydon’s South West Regional Director, Paul Barber as they climbed to the top of the scaffold to complete the ceremony and view progress of the development that started on site last year.

The development will have 65 apartments which will be available towards the end of the year. 32 apartments will be for rent with the remainder available to buy through shared ownership.

The development is part of a three-way partnership between Alliance Homes Group, North Somerset Council and The Homes and Communities Agency.
