New low-cost housing scheme gets green light


Work has begun on creating 64 new low-cost homes across the borough.

Local housing association Gedling Homes is to invest over £6million in creating the new developments in Arnold, Daybrook and Gedling.

In the Byron Street area of Daybrook, work is underway to build 21 one and two bedroom flats in a development which, once completed, will be known as Hawsley Court.

The site is being developed by Gedling Homes in partnership with construction and civil engineering experts GEDA Construction.

They are using non-standard designs provided by architects Keith Reynolds Associate to create comfortable living spaces within a relatively compact area.

Hawsley Court is currently due for completion in May 2018.

Just a mile down the road on Bestwood Lodge Drive in Arnold, a project is underway to replace a number of disused garages with brand new flats and houses. Demolition of the existing garages has already begun and the new homes are likely to be completed in April 2018.

Elsewhere at Ernehale Court in Gedling, work has begun to replace a former sheltered scheme with 12 new flats and 6 houses for affordable rent.

The former scheme was demolished in December 2016 and together with main contractors J Tomlinson, Gedling Homes have laid the foundations for the mixed-tenure development, which should be completed in March 2018.

Gedling Homes has invested £1.6million in the development, with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Notts County Council contributing £468k and £170k respectively, after funding was released by the government following their housing white paper, which committed to building more homes.

Jason Cannon, Director of Gedling Homes said; “With the country in the midst of a national housing crisis, housing associations like us are playing a crucial role of solving it by developing new, affordable homes for those that need them.

“We’re grateful to be in a position to work with local contractors and invest in the local area and be able to build new home throughout Gedling and we’re excited for people to move into them once they’re finished.”
