A CONSTRUCTION firm from Wales has been appointed to carry out the second phase of a scheme to redevelop Rowner.

The Rowner Renewal project is an eight-year £145m project to develop the run-down housing estate in Gosport.

Opco has been appointed for the £13.5m second phase which involves building 101 homes, including a residential tower and a 36,000 sq ft Tesco supermarket alongside three smaller shops.

It is expected to be finished by the summer of next year.

Nathan Holmes, Opco’s regional director for the south east said: ‘Opco’s south east team are very much looking forward to working with the Rowner Partnership and the local stakeholders for the successful completion of phase two.’

Phase one, which includes the construction of 219 new homes, a mix of private, rental and shared ownership houses and flats, is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
