New low-cost housing project picks up property in Netherfield


A property in Netherfield is being restored as part of a housing project which aims to give those struggling to pay high rents somewhere affordable to live.

Think Big Developments has appointed local contractors to renovate the inside and outside of the property in Dunstan Street.

The company has also partnered with New College Nottingham to provide a minimum of twelve students work experience and the opportunity to enhance their portfolio.

This new initiative offers students the chance to learn new skills within the industry, in line with the Government’s ever growing need for low-cost housing.

Louchavan Lemard, co-founder and director of Think Big Developments said: “Our vision is to eliminate deprivation, rogue landlords and anti-social behaviour.
“We believe that our business will boost the local economy by offering employment, work experience and apprenticeships through our projects such as Dunstan Street”.

Ryan Jeffers, also co-found and director of Think Big Developments added: “We hope to work closely with the local council and authorities developing properties across Nottingham.

“Dunstan Street is only the start of our vision becoming a reality”.

The company’s first project in St. Ann’s is now home to a family who have previously struggled with paying the high rent prices which many rogue landlords are charging.

Think Big Developments heavily relies on building and supporting the communities they work in and have already provided donations of time and resources to local charitable organisations such as Nottingham Street Nights – a homeless charity functioning in the city centre.

The company hopes to support more local communities, students and companies as they aim to tackle this ever-growing national housing crisis.
