Castleward builds a good reputation

Phase one of Bondholder Compendium Living's Castleward urban village project has been highly commended in the "New Build" category of the Brighter City of Derby awards by fellow Bondholder Derby Civic Society.

The Mayor of Derby presented a certificate to Compendium Living project manager Ian Woodland. Managing Director Dave Bullock said: "We are delighted that Derby Civic Society has awarded Castleward highly commended in this category. We had a fantastic year in 2015 and have been delighted with the response we've had so far from local people to our high quality homes."

Phase one of the Castleward project, the Boulevard, is nearing completion. It includes 164 homes, coffee shops, retail outlets and a convenience store.

Derby Civic Society secretary David Ling said the Castleward scheme deserved to be recognised: "The development has been constructed with bright modern buildings respecting the 19th century street layout, but including a brand new square, which is the central feature of the site. This is the first phase in the important step towards re-introducing residential development to the city centre."
