New homes given the go-ahead

Plans to build 30 new council houses in Bulwell and Basford have been approved by planners.

Planning permission has been granted for Nottingham City Homes (NCH) to deliver 13 council houses on a former care home site in Bulwell, and a further 17 new homes in Basford.

Two, three and four-bedroom homes will be built on the derelict site at Aldgate Close, Bulwell, after plans were given the go-ahead.

17 new homes on Tunstall Drive in Basford have also been approved by

Nottingham City Council’s planning committee. Work on these new homes is due to start in spring next year. NCH are yet to appoint a developer to the project, but will be going out to tender in the coming months.

The construction in Bulwell is being carried out by local firm, Robert Woodhead Group and work should begin in December 2018.

Nick Murphy, Chief Executive of NCH, said: “We are continuing to develop sites and build much needed new homes across the city, delivering twice as many homes as any other arms-length management company. These sites form part of the ongoing Building a Better Nottingham programme, which is transforming communities across the city.

“Our vision is to create homes and places where people want to live, and these new developments add to this by providing affordable housing in Bulwell and Basford to meet the growing requirement of the community.”

Councillor Linda Woodings, Portfolio Holder for Planning, Housing and Heritage at the City Council, said “Nottingham has a number of different types of housing needs. Sites like the ones at Tunstall Drive and Bulwell, provide an opportunity to develop attractive, well managed homes to meet local demand for that area.

“Developing apartments on sites like at Tunstall Drive, also allows tenants who are living in larger properties and looking to downsize to do so, freeing up much needed family housing for those who need it.”

Craig Pygall, Construction Director for Woodhead Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with Nottingham City Homes and Nottingham City Council again on what will be a transformational development.

“The Building a Better Nottingham programme is close to our hearts as we have been involved in projects from the start of this iconic scheme. Being a Nottinghamshire company ourselves, we always aim to work with as many local people and businesses as we can, while ensuring we deliver quality, efficient and affordable buildings. This site will be no different, and we can’t wait to get started.”
