New homes for Hinckley

A massive transformation is underway at a derelict site in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

At the old council depot site off Middlefield Lane, work has begun on 54 brand new homes.

There will be something for everyone. One-bed flats and family homes will be offered for a mix of tenures. In total, 28 homes will be available for affordable rent, 20 for shared ownership and six for Rent to Buy.

The new development, designed by architects RGB, will breathe life back into the area. A phased completion will see the new homes become available from May 2020.

The development at Middlefield Lane is the next phase in the successful working partnership between Countryside Properties, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, and NCHA.

The collaboration’s first success was the new development of 68 affordable homes on Southfield Road, also in Hinckley, which opened in 2018.

The affordable rent homes at Middlefield Lane will be let through Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council’s choice-based-lettings scheme and the shared ownership properties will be sold via NCHA Sales.
