Energy-saving homes for Ollerton

On Newark Road in Ollerton, we’ve completed our first in-house build project.

Our in-house teams, have created seven, two bedroom homes from start to finish. We’ve done everything from idea conception and design, through to build and landscaping.

The homes of Parklands Grove back onto the beautiful Ollerton Pit Wood. Life has been brought back to wasteland that had sat empty for decades.

Building eco-friendly homes

We’re passionate about doing our bit for the environment. This gas-free development is full of green energy solutions, built to energy rating A, and will help to lower customers’ energy bills.

This development has been designed with:

  • Solar panels
  • Thick insulation
  • Air source heat pumps.

The fences within the development include hedgehog holes to allow them to roam freely. Swift bricks and bat boxes have also been built into the external walls of the homes.

Official opening

We celebrated the completion of the scheme with guest representatives from Newark and Sherwood District Council, Homes England and Penny Poyzer, Chair of the Nottingham Good Food Partnership. The group took a tour of the site.

Councillor Tim Wendels, from Newark and Sherwood District Council, commented: “We welcome the opportunity to celebrate these new affordable, energy-saving homes meeting local housing needs. The site has some great environmental features that will help residents to bring down their household bills, stay warm and reduce their carbon footprint. I’m really impressed by the eco-measures I’ve seen today, and I’m sure tenants will be happy in their new homes.”

Allan Fisher, Director of Development and Assets for NCHA, added: “This opening marks the completion of our long-held vision of designing, developing and building new homes from start to finish. It’s been in the planning for many years, and I’m delighted with the end result.”

The development costed £1.2m and was part funded with a £210,000 Homes England grant. The scheme was designed and contract managed by NCHA’s Pelham team.
