Chequers Close was named after the old name for the Wild Service tree which historically grew on this site.

Typical of many developments of this period, the area had become run down and no longer provided it's residents with an acceptable quality of environment.


These issues were addressed by the demolition of asbsetos-roofed garages, provision of secure garden boundaries, improved parking and an attractively planted central green space.

The completed scheme has been very successful and well-received by the residents.
