Work starts on 75 affordable homes at Sinfin development

Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) has started work to build a development of 75 new affordable homes on Goodsmoor Road in Derby.

The site on Goodsmoor Road in Sinfin, less than five miles south of Derby city centre, will provide accommodation comprising one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes whilst regenerating the site of a former munition depot.

Marking the first joint scheme as part of a wider partnership, MORRO Partnerships will construct the affordable homes on behalf of NCHA.

The development will be made up of 45 affordable homes for rent and 30 will be available to buy with the help of the shared ownership scheme.

NCHA, MORRO and RG+P Architects met with Derby City Council for a tour of the site.

Councillor Shiraz Khan, Cabinet Member for Housing, Property and Regulatory Services at Derby City Council, said: “The right to a warm, safe and affordable home is critical to wellbeing and is a right everyone deserves. This mix of new affordable homes is exactly what Derby needs to support local families and young professionals.

“I’m thrilled to see construction underway and look forward to seeing future residents building strong communities here.”

The scheme contributes to NCHA‘s Strategic Partnership with Homes England, to deliver new, affordable homes across the East Midlands.

Allan Fisher, Director of Development at NCHA, said: “We are working towards all our new homes being as environmentally friendly as possible, with good thermal comfort and affordability for our customers. We would like to thank Derby City Council for their support on this scheme.”

Construction is scheduled to be completed summer 2025.

The development will feature a historic World War II pillbox to the south which will be retained and maintained for the benefit of the local community, preserving the legacy of the site the homes will be built upon.

Matthew Moore, CEO at MORRO, said: “We’re really looking forward to working towards this brownfield site becoming a thriving community with some much-needed affordable housing for people in the South Derbyshire area.

“We pledge to become better community makers and better environment makers, so the progression of these homes across the lifecycle will help to fulfil that while making positive change to the area.”
