Plans given the go ahead for new apartments in St Ann’s

nottingham city council

Nottingham City Homes (NCH) has been granted planning permission to build 48 new council apartments in St Ann’s.

 

The flats will go to single people and couples on the council house waiting list and will be built on the site of the former care home at Oakdene, Woodborough Road, St Ann’s.

 

NCH expect to appoint a contractor later this year with plans to be on site in early 2021. The properties would be completed around summer 2022.

 

The homes will be owned by Nottingham City Council and managed by Nottingham City Homes and will be let to people on the council house waiting list at affordable rents.

 

Nick Murphy, the Chief Executive of Nottingham City Homes, said: “There is a real demand for affordable flats, and we have many single people and couples who are waiting on the council social housing register for homes just like these.

 

“These flats will also help people living in council houses, who are currently affected by the bedroom tax to move somewhere more suitable, while freeing up houses for another family on the waiting list.

 

“We look forward to getting on the site in the new-year and transforming it and creating more safe, warm and modern homes for local people.”

 

Councillor Linda Woodings, Portfolio Holder for Planning, Housing and Heritage at Nottingham City Council, said: “It is more important than ever that we continue to press ahead with our commitment to build or buy 1,000 council and social homes for rent by 2023, so this planning decision is great news to help towards this goal.

 

“Sites like Oakdene are in need of investment and we plan to transform them into muchneeded affordable housing for local people waiting for a home.”
