Affordable homes for Market Harborough

The soil has been cut, and work has commenced on a new affordable development in Market Harborough.

27 brand new homes will be built on Windmill Road off Tymecrosse Gardens in Market Harborough. A mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom houses and bungalows. 15 will be sold for shared ownership and the remaining 12 will be let at an affordable rent.

NCHA are already well established in Leicestershire. We own and manage 2,400 homes across the county, but this new scheme will be the first one we’ve built in Market Harborough.

Working in partnership with Harborough District Council, we have planned a scheme to help locals struggling to afford their own home to rent or buy. It’s a thoughtfully-designed development, and will offer plenty of choice for local people on different stages of the property ladder. All the new homes will have their own private garden and parking.

Cllr Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “We have an excellent record for making affordable homes happen, and I am delighted that the Council has been able to work in partnership with NCHA to provide these fantastic houses for the community, which will be a massive help to those people, on our housing waiting list, struggling to find a property within their budget.”

Allan Fisher, Director of Development and Assets at NCHA says, “It has been a positive start getting the groundworks underway. We look forward to seeing the new development take shape and contributing 27 new affordable homes to the area.”

NCHA have partnered with VentURe Properties Group and Mercer Building Solutions for the build. The scheme, designed by IMA (Leicester) Ltd is funded by contributions from Homes England and NCHA. The site is expected to be complete by November 2022.

Early expressions of interest for the shared ownership properties can be made to NCHA Sales. All affordable rent homes will be let through Harborough District Council’s Homes Housing Register.
