Come along to our open day!

West Lindsey District Council and Ongo are delighted to announce that the homes on North Marsh Road (on the site on the old maternity home) are near completion.

As previously revealed, the development will provide 24 affordable apartments for over-55s close Gainsborough town centre and a range of local amenities including doctors, dentists, local shops and major bus routes.

We are hosting an open day at the Council offices, Marshall’s Yard, Gainsborough on Tuesday, 3 December. This is an opportunity for residents to find out more about the development and how to register their interest in moving into the new apartments.

The apartments, once complete, will be owned and managed by Scunthorpe based housing provider, Ongo, who received grant funding from Homes England and West Lindsey District Council to enable them to deliver the scheme aimed at providing a new housing option for the over 55s

The Gelder Group, which has been working on the development of the apartments have been working closely with Ongo and the Council to ensure the scheme uses local products, employs local people and is delivered to a standard that everyone can be proud of. Work started on site in November 2018 and is expected to be complete in early 2020.

Di Krochmal, Lead Officer for Strategic Housing at West Lindsey District Council said: “The open day is a great way for local people to find out more about the new 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, which are aimed specifically at those aged over 55.

“The self-contained apartments will all be available to rent. The building also has a communal lounge area where residents can socialise with family, friends and neighbours if they wish to do so. The properties will be advertised through the Council’s Choice Based Lettings scheme and our staff will be on hand to help make sure that if you are interested in the properties that you are registered with West Lindsey Home Choice. Properties will be advertised as they are nearing completion and our staff will advise you on when this will be and what you will need to do.

Helen Wright, Support Service Manager at Ongo said: “Chesleigh House is a fantastic development, and we’re delighted to be working in partnership to provide brand new, quality homes in the area.

“The 24 apartments are due for completion in March 2020, and we can’t wait to move people in. We hope to see lots of you at the event, but if you can’t make it, get in touch with West Lindsey District Council to find out more.”

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to find out how you could secure one of these fantastic new properties by coming along to the open day at the Guildhall on 3 December between 1 and 5.
