Development of new affordable homes well underway in Stapleford

Development of 24 new affordable rent homes for Tuntum Housing Association are well underway on Nottingham Road in Stapleford

Sitting on the outskirts of the town centre, the homes will bring new life to disused land that was formally owned by Ford.

The finished scheme will offer 15 two-bed flats and nine three and four bedroom homes. We are developing these new homes for Tuntum Housing Association, as part of a wider deal to deliver 68 new-build and renovated homes by 2028.

The £5.6m development is being built by Nottingham-based MyPad. They’ll be built to a high quality and are designed to energy rating B. All the homes will be fitted with PV panels; heating in the houses will come from high efficiency gas fired boilers, while electric panel heating will warm the flats.

The finished homes will be owned by Tuntum and let at an affordable rent through Broxtowe Borough Council to support housing need in the area.

NCHA, Tuntum and MyPad met with The Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Teresa Cullen for a tour of the site. She commented:

“Affordable homes are desperately needed so I was honoured to visit the site of these new homes in Stapleford, as well as hear about how the developers are working to make them more energy efficient. I can’t wait to see what they look like when they’re finished.”

Charmaine Simei, Chief Executive at Tuntum Housing Association, comments: “I’m delighted to see this development well underway and look forward to monitoring our progress as we move closer to handover.

This is a great example of partnership working and would like to thank NCHA and MyPad. This is a great location and will go some way to providing much-needed family homes for the people of Broxtowe.”

The homes are due for completion from November 2024.
