Work continues on affordable homes

Work is progressing on two sites a company is building affordable homes on in South Holland.

The Longhurst Group is building 36 homes on the former Welland Hospital in Spalding and 55 homes on Crease Drove in Crowland.
Welland Park, as the Spalding site is being called, is to be made up of two and three-bedroom homes, with many of the properties now starting to take shape on site.
In total, 18 homes on the development – which is accessible from Roman Bank and Holbeach Road – will be made available for shared ownership, with the remaining 18 for affordable rent.
The Crowland homes will be a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties built by GEDA Construction and will be available for shared ownership, rent to buy and affordable rent.
Marcus Keys, Longhurst Group’s Executive Director of Growth and Development, said: “These homes will help to address the need for more affordable housing for rent and home ownership across South Holland and we’re delighted to be bringing these much-needed homes to fruition.
“At Crowland it’s anticipated that there will be another few weeks of work before construction begins on the actual homes. We’re looking forward to making these properties available to local residents and those looking to take their first step on the home ownership ladder.
He added: “It’s wonderful to see the progress on site at Welland Park – a development we’re proud to be delivering to this part of Lincolnshire.
“It’ll provide more much-needed affordable housing in Spalding.”
