The Mayor of Whitchurch, Councillor Andy Hall, recently toured the housing developments Clockmakers and Talbot Place.

The 546-home expansion, brought to life by developers Barratt and David Wilson Homes, gave the Mayor the chance to explore the community.

The Mayor got a chance to speak with the teams at Barratt and David Wilson Homes, understanding the development process of both projects.

His visit also saw the formal opening of Talbot Place's show homes, which launched in June.

Mr Hall said: "I was delighted to attend Barratt and David Wilson Homes in Whitchurch to see first-hand this amazing development coming together.
