Work begins on sought-after affordable homes in Nottingham

At a former coach station on Beechdale Road, building work has started on 39 new affordable homes.

The scheme will transform a disused patch of land into a new community, offering affordable housing and has been designed to blend sensitively with the wider area. We have partnered with Nottingham-based MyPad for the build.

There’ll be a mix of one, two, three and four bedroom homes to support the variety of housing need in the area. Seventeen homes will be sold for shared ownership and the remaining 22 will be let at an affordable rent to those on the waiting list with Nottingham Home Link.

Each home will have its own private garden and allocated parking spaces; parking for visitors has also been included in the design. The homes will be built to a high quality and to energy rating B.

The Head of Housing and Regeneration at Nottingham City Council, Mark Lowe met with Fran Cropper, New Business and Development Manager at NCHA to mark the start of work at the site.

Mark Lowe, Head of Housing and Regeneration, Nottingham City Council, said: “Nottingham needs more affordable housing like this for local families in housing need. I look forward to seeing the build completed and residents moving in to form healthy and sustainable communities.”

Fran Cropper, New Business and Development Manager, added: “After many years in the planning, it’s great to see this development begin. There’s an incredibly high demand for affordable housing in Nottingham City, and we’re delighted to be able to deliver homes to people who need them the most.”

MyPad have worked with Nottinghamshire-based architects, Another Kind in designing the development which is due for completion autumn 2024.

Tom Spink, Director at MyPad, commented: “We’re delighted to see works now progressing on this site after our team’s hard work obtaining planning permission earlier this year. It’s been a pleasure to work with Nottingham City Council and NCHA who have both been instrumental in making this regeneration development possible. We’re now focused on completing the build and handing over keys to NCHA later next year.”

We have funded the development with support from Homes England. The scheme contributes to our Strategic Partnership with Homes England, to deliver new, affordable homes across the East Midlands and East of England.
