Forge New Homes, the partnership between five Sheffield housing providers, has exchanged contracts with Homes England on its second site – the former site of Bolsover Hospital.
The joint venture is preparing plans for 58 new homes on the 6.5-acre site, located on the northern edge of the market town of Bolsover, Derbyshire.
This will be a range of three and four-bedroom family homes for sale and affordable rent.
The Bolsover site is a significant key milestone for the partnership between five housing associations – Great Places Housing Group, the Guinness Partnership, Together Housing, South Yorkshire Housing Association and Yorkshire Housing – that is aiming to address the shortfall in housing in the Sheffield City Region. These housing associations own and manage 150,000 homes across the country.
Andy Beattie, Project Director at Forge New Homes, said: “We’re excited to have exchanged contracts with Homes England and working up our proposals for the site in collaboration with Homes England and Caddick Construction and plan to submit our planning application to Bolsover Council in the summer.
