Lovell to develop £13.2m Lincoln housing scheme

Developer Lovell is set to create 73 new village homes in Branston near Lincoln with a £13.2m scheme.

Lovell will build 47 homes for sale as well as 26 affordable homes for housing provider Longhurst Group, ranging from one bedroom properties up to four bedroom properties.

The firm is set to start preparatory work this year before beginning construction in early 2018. The overall development is set to be completed in early 2020.

Mel Baker, Project Manager at Longhurst Group, said: “We are delighted that work is due to start on site at this development, which will bring much-needed, high-quality affordable housing to Lincolnshire.

“With the location being so close to the city of Lincoln and considering the variety of homes available, we expect The Spires to be a very popular scheme. It’s also another example of our excellent partnership with Lovell.”

Lovell Regional Managing Director Robert Adams said: “We’re very excited to be preparing to start work on this major development which is in a prime location, giving residents the opportunity to enjoy a thriving village in close proximity to Lincoln, with access to first-rate transport connections across the region and beyond.

“The new homes will significantly widen the choice of properties available to local homebuyers, delivering a range of stylish houses of varying sizes for sale, as well as helping answer the demand for high-quality affordable homes.”
