Green Light for 40 Affordable Homes in Mansfield

Urban Developments (York) Ltd has secured Reserved Matters planning permission for 40 affordable homes in the village of Church Warsop in Mansfield.

The two-storey properties will deliver a mix of properties, including 26 semi-detached two-bed houses, eight terraced two-beds, two semi-detached two-beds and the remaining providing four-bedroomed homes.

The 3.1 Acre site is predominantly tree lined and new landscaping is also proposed. A new access will be provided from Wood Lane, with the public footpaths on the eastern edge retained. Providing traditional family homes, designed in line with the Building for Life principles, the scheme will improve the visual amenity of this scrub land site. 

Nick Gould, Managing Director at Urban Developments (York) Ltd, said: “This will be a distinctive, high quality development providing a variety of affordable homes to meet the needs of the area.

“Well located, within easy reach of Warsop town centre and a good public transport network, it will benefit the local economy. We will also deliver local training and apprenticeship opportunities during construction.”

Designed by Den Architecture, Urban Group will deliver the development with local sub-contractors, on behalf of a regional registered housing provider.

The development includes additional sustainability measures for the homes, including air source heat pumps, meaning gas-free homes, and electric vehicle car charging points.

As well as delivering new housing developments for local authorities and housing associations, Urban Group also provides decarbonisation options to propel properties up the crucial Energy Performance Certification bands. Its retro fitting measures include a wide range of services including damp mitigation, wall, cavity, floor and roof insulation, along with window, door and secondary glazing upgrades.
