Project

The 50 properties which made up the development of the former West Wight Middle School, was Drew Smith Limited’s first project on the Isle of Wight. The development consists of 2-3 bed houses, which varied between Open Market, Shared Ownership and affordable rent.

The majority part of houses incorporated eco-friendly Swift boxes built in and achieved a Code Level 4 rating for Sustainable Homes.

Employment generated by the site, created opportunities for the local labour market and proved an invaluable resource having never developed on the island before.

Adjacent to the development is an Orchard Copse, which was reformed to be more user friendly for the residents, who were heavily involved with this project. Local resident’s feedback was very positive and complimentary of both the final development and the Copse.
