Interim Results

CW Residential PLC
15 August 2003


Chairman's Interim Statement

Trading results

For the six month period to 30 June 2003 the Group made a profit before taxation
of £162,144 (2002: £377,715).


Encouraged by your Group's continuing strong financial position, your Directors
have therefore declared an increased interim dividend of 1.5 pence per share
(2002: 1.35 pence per share).  The dividend will be payable on 16 September
2003, to shareholders on the register on 29 August 2003.


In the six months to 30 June 2003, your Group has completed the sale of two
investment properties totalling £180,500.  Both were in excess of their 2002
year end valuation.  In the recent past, your Directors have found it difficult
to acquire further investment properties at what they regard as sensible prices.
However, as levels of expectation of house price inflation fall, your
Directors believe that this situation may now be altering, and intend to take
full advantage of any such change.  As in previous years, it is intended to
re-value your Group's investment portfolio at the end of the year.

Turning to our house building division, since 31 December 2002 our three
remaining houses in Wells were sold at satisfactory prices.  Our Grade II listed
8 flat development in Edgbaston is on schedule to be completed this Autumn,
following which marketing will begin.  At Rochester we are finalising the plans
for our 23 flat development and will then go to tender.  In Maidstone we have
submitted an application for a small flat development on land over which we hold

As previously advised to shareholders, due to the timing of our development
programme and to the slow down in house prices increases, shareholders should
not expect a significant increase in profitability levels in the second half of
the year compared with the first half of 2003.  However, your company continues
to progress its development programme and is well placed to take advantage of
any interesting development opportunities that may present themselves.
