30 new homes at Alderton Chase have been completed on one of a number of brownfield sites which formed part of the Greater Gainsborough Housing Zone.
The Greater Gainsborough Housing Zone was a government initiative awarded to the council to stimulate and accelerate housing development on sites which have been partially developed but have stalled, and acted as a catalyst for regeneration in the town.
Developer Phil Rann realised the site’s potential and bought the land. He has worked closely with West Lindsey District Council to deliver housing on the site.
Mr Rann said: “Featuring a mix of 2 bedroom starter homes, spacious bungalows and 4 bedroom family homes, this development offers properties to suit a whole range of needs.
“This site offers a good range of housing in a great central location. Homeowners can enjoy extensively larger properties than normal here – I’d really encourage anyone searching for their ideal home to take a look at the properties available.”
Cllr Keith Panter, ward councillor for Gainsborough North, visited the site upon its completion.
He said: “This development is a wonderful example of us making Gainsborough a destination for individuals and families to live and work. These houses are spacious, modern and ideally located for anyone who wants to make full use of leisure and work opportunities in the town.”
Developing on brownfield sites in Gainsborough is a key element of major regeneration plans for the town,
Diane Krochmal, Lead Officer for Housing Strategy, Health and Wellbeing, said:
“We’re delighted to see these properties being completed on a site which had stalled for a number of years, delivering much needed housing in the town.
“I would encourage anyone looking to purchase a home to consider the wealth of opportunities that could be afforded by being located in Gainsborough. Gainsborough has an exciting future that you could be part of.”
