20 new homes have been built in The Meadows, which will now go to local families on Nottingham’s council house waiting list.
Nottingham City Homes (NCH) and contractor Robert Woodhead Limited have developed the homes on the site of the former Clifton Miners Welfare on Ainsworth Drive – on behalf of Nottingham City Council.
The two-bed houses are built to high energy efficiency standards and offer warm, secure and affordable modern homes.
These new homes on roads now called Sandstone Mews and Fossil Close, are the latest for the Meadows area – which forms part of the city’s Building a Better Nottingham programme – and follow the completion of 55 homes there in June 2018.
Nick Murphy, Chief Executive for Nottingham City Homes, said: “These homes have transformed what was once a derelict site in the Meadows. There has been significant investment in the area over the years and, working with Nottingham City Council, we continue to create quality new homes for local people.
“We want people to be proud of their homes and were they live and we feel these houses tick both of these boxes. The Council House waiting list is growing but we are committed to working with partners to build more homes that the people of Nottingham can afford to live in.”
