Work to begin on East Leake affordable housing development

Platform Housing Group will start work on 195 new homes on Lantern Lane in East Leake in April. The development will offer a mixture of affordable homes for shared ownership and rented units.

The homes – which are due for phased completion from the end of this year through to 2025 – will be made up of one, two, three and four bedroom houses and bungalows, 103 to be let at affordable rents and 92 for shared ownership.

The scheme – which is costing £42million - has been made possible by grant funding from Homes England, Recycled Capital Grants Fund and Platform Housing Group funds.

Those involved in the new development include homebuilder Miller Homes, solicitors Gately PLC and Browne Jacobson and employers’ agent Richard Morris Associates.

The site – which is a greenfield one – was granted planning permission earlier this month by Rushcliffe Borough Council.

Ian Clyde, Area Development Manager at Platform Housing Group said: “These new homes will form a high quality and sustainable affordable housing development that meets the needs of local people, particularly people who cannot afford to buy properties on the open market. We will work closely with the local council to ensure local people have access to these homes. We look forward to completion of the project and welcoming residents into their new homes.”

Tom Roberts, Land Director at Miller Homes said: “We are pleased to be working with Platform Housing Group to bring much needed new homes to East Leake. As part of the plans for the development we will be making a contribution towards local transport, footpaths, healthcare, off site outdoor sports and local schools. We are looking forward to starting work on site next month on the new homes, which will feature a mix of one to four bedroom properties including bungalows.”

East Leake – which has a population of around 7000 – is a large village and civil parish in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire, although its closet town and postal address is Loughborough in Leicestershire.
