£20m affordable housing scheme set for Gainsborough

Social housing provider Acis has ambitions to build an affordable housing scheme in Gainsborough to help West Lindsey District Council to regenerate the town.

The Gainsborough-based company wants to build an mix of various affordable housing types from over 55 accommodation to family homes, making it an exemplar scheme of its type. The homes are set to be built on a riverside setting on Bowling Green Lane, in the town centre, close to Mercer Wood and Riverside Walk.

The site is currently a brownfield site and has also in one of the areas designated as a Housing Zone. West Lindsey District Council, has been awarded £2.1m by the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) to enable the development.

Leader of West Lindsey District Council Giles McNeill, said: “I am delighted that Acis are looking to expanding their portfolio of homes in West Lindsey and making a substantial investment in social housing in our district.  Not only in providing these new homes but in their wider plans to renew their stock across the district.

“We recognise that housing is key to the success of our communities as well as being of paramount importance to the quality of life, health and wellbeing of residents and I am pleased that developments like this are helping us to deliver the objectives of Homes England.”

Acis will be developing the mixed private and social housing scheme, seeking to deliver a large proportion of social housing to meet the unmet needs of the local area.  The scheme, which is subject to planning permission, will provide Acis an opportunity to update their existing stock and to provide high quality housing to existing and new tenants.

Acis will be holding a public consultation event for the site on next week at Gainsborough College.
