AN ESTATE in Wotton-under-Edge is the latest to be transformed as part of Stroud District Council’s multi-million-pound regeneration plans across the district.

Ten blocks of flats in the Bearlands estate, which includes Turnpike Avenue and Pitman Place have been given a fresh look inside and out.

New secure door entry systems have been installed and communal areas redecorated and new flooring laid.

Fascias, soffits, drainpipes, guttering, paths and handrails have been replaced, and waste and recycling bins have been moved into enclosures in more prominent locations to deter fly tipping, with increased capacity for recycled waste.

The car park now has more spaces for residents’ vehicles.

As part of the estate regeneration Stroud District Council worked with the Bearlands Community Association Group to transform the play area and organised a traffic calming poster competition for pupils at The British School in the town.
