RECENTLY completed flats within Yate Shopping Centre have started to be occupied.

A total of 13 flats are above shops in South Parade, South Walk and West Walk, with eight already having residents.

The homes include a mixture of one and two-bedroom flats and there is still one one-bed unit and four two-bedroom flats available for rent.

Andrew Lowrey, the shopping centre manager, said: “The Government and South Gloucestershire Council encourage landowners to bring back redundant space in town centres above retail units to help meet the urgent requirement for more housing.

“Over the last couple of years we have been looking at our options and identified several areas where we can make badly needed residential units available for public rental.

“We had an immediate demand for the flats, we have five remaining for rent and are interested to hear from any parties wishing to be considered as tenants.

“The shopping centre already has 34 long-established residential tenants and this is the latest move to ensure all space within the complex is used effectively, making both a social and economic contribution to the town’s economy. 

“The new residential units come at the same time as several new operators are opening in North and West Walks, ensuring the centre has a very highly successful overall occupancy rate.” 

Anyone interested in the tenancies should contact Jeny Hillson on 01454 318554. The Sutton family take-up residence
