One property investor, who knows the area very well said: ''Having lived in Quedgeley some 20 - 25 years ago and still having connections due to my mother living there, I have seen the expansion of facilities in terms of supermarkets and other stores particularly due to the Kingsway development.
''An added bonus from a Landlord's point of view in terms of carrying out DIY on my BTL recently, is the number of builder's merchants/ DIY centres close by on this side of Gloucester that have become established in the last 10 years (or more)- e.g. Screwfix, Tool station, Wickes, Jewsons and MKM (more recently). I recall going back 15 years ago, what a pain it was to travel across Gloucester to get to Homebase. B & Q, Screwfix.''
