Council set to build 34 new council homes

At today's Cabinet approval was given for the use of land on Warwick Close, Kirkby to be redevelop for new council housing.

Subject to planning permission, the Council owned site would see circa 34 two-bedroom and three bedroom houses built on the site. The plot of land was previously home to flats which were demolished in 2010.

Cllr Tom Hollis, Cabinet Member for Housing said:

“The Council has ambitious plans to ensure there is sufficient good quality, affordable housing for the residents of Ashfield. Demand for homes in the District is high, with around 4,000 people on the waiting list, and approximately 150 bids for each family home we advertise.
“These high quality, affordable family houses will enable us to provide homes to more families in Kirkby.”

These proposed new homes are on top of the new Council housing currently being developed in the District. Four new Council bungalows have been built in Sutton and five town houses on Stoney Street will be completed by the Spring. The first two family homes on Hawthorne Avenue, Hucknall are finished and the development of a further thirteen homes on three former garages sites in the town will be completed in the New Year.

Construction is also underway at Davies Avenue, Sutton and the Council has a number of other exciting schemes in the pipeline.
