Work begins on Coalville affordable housing scheme

Work has begun to build 28 new affordable homes on the site of the former Forest Way School on Waterworks Road in Coalville.

Designed by Leicester-based architectural design and property management consultancy, The Martin Design Partnership (TMDP), the new development is being built by contractor and developer Williams Homes in partnership with Waterloo Housing Group.

The project, costing £3m, will create 24 two-bedroom homes and four one-bedroom flats.

Scott Moore, managing partner, TMDP said: “Making use of brownfield sites that have laid dormant for such a long period of time, not only addresses the on-going demand for affordable housing but also has a regenerative effect on the local area. “When complete, the 28 home development will no doubt revitalise its surroundings and I look forward to seeing this site come back to life in 12 months’ time.”

Ian Anderson, director, Williams Homes said: “We are delighted to be working on this project to transform a disused site into much needed affordable housing. Together with our partners, we are creating high quality yet affordable homes that will benefit the whole community.”

Sarah Robinson, area development manager for Waterloo Housing Group said: “We are pleased to be working again with The Martin Design Partnership and Williams Homes, having just successfully completed a scheme with the same team in Loughborough.

“We are looking forward to delivering 23 homes for rent and 5 for Shared Ownership, and could not have done so without the financial support of grant from the Homes and Communities Agency, and funding from North West Leicestershire DC.” Scheduled for phased completion between Summer to Autumn 2016, the new homes will be available for rent and shared ownership.
