Work starts on £7.8m Ashbourne affordable homes scheme

Representatives from Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) and Derbyshire Dales District Council got together last week to celebrate the beginning of work on a new £7.8m affordable housing development on Ashbourne’s Mayfield Road.

Formerly a service station and garage, Dove Garage has now been demolished. A development of 37 new homes has begun, providing a selection of one, two and three bedroom houses. 19 homes will be available for affordable rent and 18 sold for shared ownership.

The District Council’s director of housing, Rob Cogings, said: “We are delighted to have worked in partnership with NCHA to deliver the most energy efficient affordable housing scheme ever built here in the Derbyshire Dales.

“The scheme will meet a range of housing needs which are evident on the Council’s Housing Register. The environmental sustainability of the proposal will ensure this is one of the best performing environmental housing developments in the district.”

Working in partnership with Derbyshire Dales District Council, NCHA have planned a gas-free development. These new homes will be built to EPC A energy rating, with high energy efficiency standards, air-source heat pumps and access to green space. All the new homes will have their own private garden and parking.

Allan Fisher, director of development and assets at NCHA, said: “We are passionate about delivering affordable homes and healthy environments. These energy-efficient homes will be built to an EPC A standard to help residents reduce their energy bills and reduce our impact on the environment.”

The scheme, designed by architects Player Roberts Bell, is funded by contributions from Homes England and NCHA. NCHA have partnered with MyPad for the build which is expected to be complete by Winter 2023/2024.
