Work begins on new affordable homes scheme in Northampton

Building work has now commenced on the construction of 73 new affordable homes in Northampton, thanks to a partnership between mixed-tenure developer, Countryside, and Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA).

The development on Dayrell Road, just north of West Hunsbury, is the first collaboration between Countryside’s South Midlands division and NCHA, a partnership which seeks to introduce more high quality affordable housing for residents across the Midlands.

Work on site will see the creation of a new community of modern homes ready for occupation in September 2021. With construction work provisionally paused from March until June due to Covid-19, Countryside is now harnessing its Modern Methods of Construction to enable an accelerated delivery of the development.

Gary Belcher, Managing Director, Partnerships South Midlands, Countryside, said: “Commencing construction on Dayrell Road in partnership with NCHA signals the creation of much-needed affordable homes for local people in Northampton.

“It is thanks in large part to the commitment and hard work of our site team who have gone to great lengths to work both safely and efficiently during this period of social distancing. We look forward to working with NCHA for the duration of this project and beyond and welcoming their residents into brand new homes next autumn.”

Allan Fisher, Director of Development and Assets at NCHA, said: “It’s great that work is now able to commence at this scheme in Northampton. The development, providing 73 new affordable homes, will make such a difference to the local community; rented homes at affordable levels for families priced out of the rental market, and shared ownership homes to help people get on the property ladder. Thank you to our partners Countryside for their continued efforts to ensure the viability of the project during these recent months.”
