£4.2m Coventry affordable housing development on track for summer completion

Birmingham-based housing provider Midland Heart is working in partnership with construction company Bouygues UK and Coventry City Council, supported by funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), to deliver the much needed affordable housing development in Coventry, which is progressing well and set for completion this summer.

The development of 36 new homes will transform the site of an old Council Depot building on William Lewis Walk into a mixture of one, two, three and four bedroomed houses and flats for affordable rent and shared ownership.

Carl Larter, executive director of assets at Midland Heart said: “We are delighted to be bringing these high quality, affordable homes to the Midlands, not only regenerating the area but also providing opportunities for first time buyers to take a step onto the housing ladder.”

Work started on site in May 2016 and is progressing well with some homes built up to the first floor and others having roofs fitted.

Craig Tatton, chief operating officer at Bouygues UK added: “This is a fantastic project, transforming an old council depot into high-quality housing and contributing to the regeneration of the local community. As we enter the final straight, we are excited to be bringing this development to life, as we turn it from a construction site into much-needed new homes.”

The new homes are part of the HCA’s New Affordable Homes Programme, which aims to increase the supply of new affordable homes in England by March 2018.
