Disused land transformed to provide new homes in Wellingborough

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Disused land transformed to provide new homes in WellingboroughA disused allotment site on the edge of the market town of Wellingborough has been transformed by the development of 31 new affordable homes for local people.  

Derwent Living and Westleigh Partnership Homes worked together to provide the new homes on the site at Senwick Road which has been unused for 50 years.

Six homes for shared ownership and 25 houses and flats for rent have been created to provide high quality affordable housing in the area.  The homes were built by Westleigh Partnership Homes with funding from Derwent Living Ltd and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) housing programme

Samantha Veal, assistant director of development at Derwent Living, said:  “It is wonderful to see the transformation from a disused and overgrown allotment site to great housing for the people of Wellingborough. The development marks Derwent Living’s second scheme in Wellingborough, an area in which we hope to invest much more in the future.”

Gary Turner, head of investment and partnerships at Westleigh, said: “The completion at Senwick Road demonstrates just how important partnership schemes are and what they can achieved by turning disused land into much-needed affordable housing.

“Senwick Road is one of several sites we have been involved with in Wellingborough and we are committed to continuing our work in the area. We are delighted to have once again worked with Derwent Living and the local authorities and look forward to seeing the development thrive into a new community.”

Derwent Living is a ‘profit for social purpose’ organisation providing affordable housing to suit a range of lifestyles. Formed in 1964, Derwent Living manages more than 15,000 properties in the Midlands, South Yorkshire and the South East.

Westleigh Partnership Homes is part of the Homes & Communities Agency Delivery Partner Panel on both the Midlands and Northern lots and works closely with housing associations building  affordable new homes throughout the East Midlands, South Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire
